Financing of Futures CTDs

Secured financing - ring fenced basket

The most efficient manner to finance Cheapest to Deliver (CTD) for fixed income futures is now available via Eurex Repo. Eurex Repo’s GC Pooling service offers a new ring-fenced basket targeting futures deliverables as a standardized basket. It removes the need for clearing members to warehouse the CTDs and finance them through their internal treasury.

The CTD Basket contains German and French Government Bonds as deliverables for the next three futures expiries and is automatically updated in case of an inclusion or exclusion of a deliverable security.

Financing the CTDs via a GC Pooling CTD Basket repo trade and an enhanced delivery process with an optimized account setup, dramatically reduces the risk of late delivery penalties and enables continuous trading till the last trading day.
