On 30 July 2009, in response to the industry commitment on 17 February to introduce central counterparty in over-the-counter (OTC) credit default swaps (CDS) in Europe by the end of July 2009, Eurex Credit Clear successfully started CDS clearing. Eurex Credit Clear offers immediate access to asset managers to its central counterparty clearing platform in CDS.
