Response to European Commission's consultation on Derivatives and Market Infrastructures

The London Stock Exchange Group has provided a full response to the European Commission's consultation on Derivatives and Market Infrastructures.  In our response we outline our views and principles on the broader market structure issues. We agree with the Commission’s view of the benefits of clearing OTC derivative contracts through a central counterparty (CCP). However, the use of CCPs does not eliminate risk. We believe the Commission should mitigate systemic risk by:

  • ensuring the clearing obligation is properly managed;
  • implementing common minimum standards;
  • ensuring safe and efficient interoperability; and
  • requiring real time risk management by CCPs.
