Full-service strategy: the settlement service could reduce liquidity burdens

Eurex Clearing has struck a deal with CLS to use its net settlement service for cleared over-the-counter foreign exchange derivatives, Risk.net has learned.

The move allows Deutsche Börse-owned Eurex, which currently clears and settles FX futures and listed options, to add OTC FX products such as swaps and forwards.

"This co-operation [with CLS] allows us to further expand our FX product portfolio," says Heike Eckert, deputy chief executive of Eurex Clearing in Frankfurt.
