ABN Amro Clearing Joins LCH.Clearnet's SwapClear

ABN Amro Clearing has started clearing its interbank interest rate swap (IRS) trades through SwapClear, LCH.Clearnet’s over-the-counter (OTC) IRS clearing service, thereby reducing counterparty, credit and operational risk. The total number of SwapClear clearing members now stands at 37.

ABN Amro Clearing is a global securities services provider, covering 85 of the world’s leading exchanges across Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific. It has 12 offices across the globe and consistently ranks among the top three clearers in every time zone, based on the amount of turnover and market share.

“The clearing of interest rate swaps through a robust central counterparty is critical to reducing systemic risk in the marketplace. With the swiftly changing regulatory environment of clearing services, ABN Amro Clearing is determined to remain at the forefront of this growth industry. Clearing our dealer to dealer business with an industry leading service such as SwapClear will bring greater transparency and efficiency and we look forward to introducing the benefits of central clearing to our clients in the near future,” said Alexander Jacobs, head of the OTC derivatives clearing service at ABN Amro Clearing.
