State Street Global Exchange Joins LCH.Clearnet’s SwapClear

State Street Global Exchange announced today that it is now clearing over-the-counter interest rate swaps using LCH.Clearnet Ltd.’s, SwapClear service. The announcement comes shortly after SwapEx SM, State Street’s electronic trading platform for interest rate and FX derivatives, was provisionally registered as a swap execution facility (SEF) by the CFTC in September. SwapEx began trading on October 8, 2013.

“Our SwapClear membership gives our global client base access to the world’s largest clearing house for interest rate swaps with deep liquidity pools and superior risk management,” said Martine Bond, head of trading and clearing at State Street Global Exchange. “As an entire industry aligns itself with the new regulatory environment, having comprehensive clearing and servicing solutions ensures that our clients are efficient across the entire derivatives trade lifecycle.”

“State Street is an important addition to SwapClear’s global membership roster” said Daniel Maguire, head of SwapClear US at LCH.Clearnet. “Buy-side clients will benefit from the addition of a global industry leader to an already strong pool of direct clearing members and liquidity providers.”

SwapClear membership expands State Street Global Exchange’s existing end-to-end derivatives solution, DerivOne SM, which includes execution, clearing, servicing, collateral management, valuation, and risk and analytics for over the counter and exchange traded derivatives. State Street has been a member of CME Group since 2010 and is actively pursuing other clearing memberships.

State Street Global Exchange delivers proprietary data, insights, analytics and trading solutions to address clients’ needs to make better investment decisions, generate superior returns and effectively manage data and risk. LCH.Clearnet is the largest clearer of interest rate swaps, clearing over 95% of the world's cleared interest rate swaps. LCH.Clearnet launched SwapClear in 1999, and it has been a CFTC-regulated derivatives clearing organization since 2001.
