LCH offers clearing services on Oslo Børs Derivatives Market

Global clearing house LCH has announced that it is now offering clearing services for financial derivatives listed on Oslo Børs Derivatives Market. Five additional members trading financial derivatives on Oslo Børs are able to access the risk management benefits of clearing at LCH SA and two existing clearing members will extend their membership to clear the Oslo market.

The appointment of LCH SA as the central counterparty clearing house comes after Euronext’s acquisition of Oslo Børs in 2019. Existing members of LCH SA’s listed derivatives clearing service are able to extend their existing memberships to include trading activity at Oslo Børs.


Christophe Hémon, CEO, LCH SA, commented:

LCH SA has a strong track record in providing the market with robust risk management solutions across a range of products. Connecting to LCH will support the growth of our membership base, by onboarding a more diverse set of member firms. We’re pleased to be offering Oslo Børs’s members with an efficient post trade service to fulfil their clearing obligations.

Earlier in October, LCH announced that it will be supporting the clearing of bonds issued as part of the European Union’s temporary support to mitigate unemployment risks in an emergency (SURE) programme.
