Ice Europe’s liquidity risk at record high in Q4

Estimated largest payment obligation in euros more than double previous quarter’s figure

Euro-denominated liquidity risk at Ice Clear Europe surged more than twofold in the fourth quarter of 2023, hitting an all-time high.

The largest amount the central counterparty (CCP) would be left on the hook for in the event of a single clearing member and its affiliates defaulting in a reasonable worst-case scenario was equivalent to $11.5 billion. This was up from $4.4 billion in the third quarter, surpassing the previous record set in Q4 2022 by $6.6 million.
