Eurex: from EQD clearing specialist to all-rounder

Initial margin for equity derivatives makes up 41% of total, down from 63% four years prior

Long an equity derivatives clearing powerhouse, Frankfurt-based Eurex today is a far more diverse central counterparty, used by members and their clients to handle a wide range of products, as reflected in its breakdown of required initial margin.

As of Q3 2019, the CCP held €44.7 billion ($50.1 billion) of required initial margin. Of this amount, 41% was for equity derivatives products. This is down from 46% in Q3 2018 and 63% in Q3 2015, the first quarter for which data is available.
