From July 2014 ASX will offer a client account structure that will enable a Clearing Participant to offer their Clients an account that provides separate identification and protection of individual Client positions and associated initial margin value, in addition to the current net omnibus client account.
Further details on the service offering, including the specific account types that will be available, can be found in the Futures Client Clearing FAQs document on the ASX website.
Industry Wide Testing
ASX will be conducting Industry Wide Testing (IWT) of the ASX Clear (Futures) Client Clearing Service for ASX 24 Exchange Traded Derivatives (“ETD”) from Monday 26th May 2014 until 30th June 2014. This is to provide prospective users of the ASX Clear (Futures) Client Clearing Service for ASX 24 ETD and, where required, their prospective Client Protection Model (CPM) Clients or Nominated Persons with the opportunity to confirm their internal readiness (i.e. system configuration, risk management processes, operational processes and procedures), to utilise the Client Clearing Service.
Further details on the IWT schedule, including specific testing scenarios that will be covered through IWT can be found in the IWT Briefing Document below.
If you are a Clearing Participant who is not participating in the IWT and have an interest in testing the ASX ETD Client Clearing, please contact Ben Symonds (contact details) listed below.
