CFTC permits LCH.Clearnet portfolio margining of customer positions in futures, foreign futures, and cleared swaps


The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC ) issued an order to LCH.Clearnet Limited, a CFTC-registered derivatives clearing organization.

The order was issued in response to a petition filed by LCH.

The order permits LCH and its clearing members that are registered futures commission merchants to:

  1. commingle in an account subject to Section 4d(f) (a cleared swaps customer account) positions in futures, foreign futures, and cleared swaps, and related customer money, securities, and property; and
  2. portfolio margin these positions in the cleared swaps customer account.
