Linklaters advises Eurex Clearing AG on U.S. clearing model and DCO registration in the U.S.

Linklaters LLP advised Eurex Clearing AG in connection with its new clearing model for U.S. clearing members and its approval by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) as a registered Derivatives Clearing Organization (DCO). Such clearing model and DCO registration will enable Eurex Clearing AG to offer its service “EurexOTC Clear” for the clearing of interest rate swaps in the United States in future and to further increase its international presence.

A Linklaters team lead by Dr Kurt Dittrich and Dr Burkhard Rinne (both Capital Markets, Frankfurt) advised on this transaction.
