Overnight heroes: central banks weigh loans for CCPs

Eurex and SGX can borrow from their central banks, while rivals have to rely on common-or-garden lenders


Clearing houses can be separated into haves and have-nots.

The have-nots hope they could do the same, but their own central banks refuse to make a public commitment, and – in the eyes of some clients – that puts them at a disadvantage.
