The inevitable fragmentation of clearing: A new landscape for derivative end-users and CCPs
Calypso in association with Solum Financial Limited examines the inevitable fragmentation of clearing
On the basis of current trends, banks taking on new OTC clearing clients will be highly selective and some will move away from third-party clearing altogether. Risk management issues and clearing broker risk are bound to rise as clearing services providers retreat. Charges seem certain to increase significantly because of the banks’ cost pressures as well as the supply-demand imbalance and, in all likelihood, the full upward adjustment in charges for clearing services is a long way from being complete.
