EMCF introduces lowest clearing rates in the world

RELATED TOPICS​

European Multilateral Clearing Facility (EMCF), Europe’s largest cash equity CCP, is offering the lowest clearing price available in Europe. Participants clearing more than 2 million trades per day will be charged EUR0.001 per trade for all of their business. The new fee equates to a lower rate than the clearing and netting fee for the same amount of business in the US or anywhere else in the world. 

This upgrade – which will be effective as of 01 March 2012 – confirms EMCF’s  commitment to be the best-priced CCP service provider at all volumes.
 
The new bands provide incentives for firms to put more volumes through EMCF and encourage additional venues to use its services.
 
The reduced settlement fees will ensure that EMCF provides the lowest pan-European settlement costs of any CCP:
 
“Not only do these changes reaffirm our position as the lowest cost provider in Europe, but our customers now have access to the lowest rates in the world,” says chief executive officer Jan Booij. “As a new central counterparty with no legacy to support, only EMCF can continue to deliver such value, while maintaining the safety of the markets it serves.”
 
EMCF was able to reduce costs thanks to renegotiating tariffs with the settlement agent for these markets. In addition, EMCF expects to further reduce the costs for UK and Ireland by activating its own direct membership with Euroclear UK and Ireland in the near future.
 
The participant loyalty schemes are introduced to create incentives for both clearing and trading participants to commit clearing flow to EMCF and to provide certainty over the maximum tariff that will be charged each month.
 
The simplifications of EMCF’s tariff structure are to remove the separate treatment for internally matched trades, which will now be charged at participants’ marginal rates and will also contribute to further discounts.  In addition, EMCF will be removing the order level tariff with effect from 1 January 2013.
