This enables Eurex’s central counterparty to offer its clearing services not only in the European Union and the U.S. but also in Japan.  The service extension into one of the largest Fixed Income markets is driven by client demand and will support the strong momentum of Eurex Clearing’s EU-based liquidity pool for Euro Swaps. With the new license, Japanese financial institutions can directly access Eurex for swap clearing and combine their listed and OTC euro yield curve business in one single place. “It’s an honour to be granted a license for a country which is one of the largest non-EU holders of European debt instruments. I would like to express my gratitude to the Japanese FSA and its staff for supporting us in this licensing process,?says Erik Müller, CEO of Eurex Clearing. “With this step, we further geographically expand our service offering into Asia and underline our commitment to becoming the global home of the euro yield curve.? Christopher Perkins, Global Head of OTC Clearing and Foreign Exchange Prime Brokerage at Citi: “Citi is very pleased to extend our unique and differentiated cleared swap connectivity on Eurex to the Japanese market. We look forward to working with Eurex to onboard new clients in Japan.? Eurex Clearing has developed a strong liquidity pool for clearing euro-denominated interest rate derivatives, mainly through its partnership program launched in early 2018. This market-led initiative is designed to further accelerate the development of a liquid, EU-based alternative for the clearing of OTC interest rate derivatives. It benefits clients and the broader market place through greater choice and competition, improved price transparency as well as reduced concentration risk. Total notional outstanding of over EUR 18 trillion (end of February) keeps Eurex’s overall market share at about 18 percent.  Access to the Japanese market is a logical next step for Eurex Clearing to expand its liquidity pool. Japanese institutions are very active in European fixed income futures on Eurex and have also significant exposure in the Euro swap market. In addition, Japan is one of the largest ETD and OTC derivatives markets globally. Outside of Japan, Eurex Clearing is recognized as a Derivatives Clearing Organization and permitted to serve clients in the U.S. under the associated LSOC model. Since recognition in February 2019, Eurex has onboarded over 20 clients with over 3,500 registered funds.

As of today, five new Eurex futures will cover the sustainable versions of key regional and global MSCI benchmarks. Trading in MSCI index-based derivatives is one of the fastest growing segments at Eurex. The share of client business driven by institutional investors has nearly doubled within the last two years and now represents 27 percent of turnover. Eurex’s MSCI index-based derivatives offering is the broadest worldwide to be tradable on a single platform. 120 MSCI index-based futures and 20 MSCI index-based options are currently listed at Eurex. Total open interest is approximately 2.5 million contracts, which is the world's highest MSCI index-based derivative-related open interest.  The new contracts complement Eurex’s previous ESG offering which mainly focused on European markets. Launched in time for the next roll in March, the new contracts include ESG-screened versions of MSCI indexes covering the U.S., emerging markets (EM), developed markets outside the U.S. & Canada (EAFE), Japan and the world. Michael Peters, Member of the Eurex Executive Board: “Our aim is to set the agenda in ESG and to offer investors the greatest possible flexibility in their global ESG investments.”? Carolyn Weinberg, Global Head of Products for ETF and Index Investments at BlackRock: “The new Eurex ESG futures reflect the growing demand for sustainable benchmarks on a global scale. The transparency of sustainable indexing methodologies empowers financial markets participants to articulate their risk preferences. The extension into derivatives is significant as sustainable indices are used as financial instruments.? The underlying MSCI ESG Screened Indexes follow a negative ESG screening or exclusions methodology, which reflect investors?most common concerns. Exclusions aim to help avoid stocks that carry reputational risk and are considered controversial. This filters out components from a standard MSCI benchmark ?such as controversial weapons companies, tobacco manufacturers or companies deriving revenues from thermal coal, as well as companies not complying with UN Global Compact Principles George Harrington, Global Head of Futures and Options Licensing at MSCI, adds, “We are excited to continue building our strategic relationship with Eurex in relation to this diverse and innovative range of ESG indexes.? Alex Kieft, Head of Trading at Flow Traders: “Provision of market liquidity is paramount. With this in mind, we are delighted to be supporting from the outset the roll-out of Eurex ESG derivatives to additional global markets.?

Investment companies are increasingly using ESG derivatives to hedge sustainably invested assets, as demonstrated by Metzler Asset Management's recently launched value protection fund. The launch of the new STOXX USA 500 ESG-X Index Futures is the next step to support market participants in their sustainable investment strategies beyond Europe.  The Eurex STOXX USA 500 ESG-X Futures contract, launched today, is the first exchange-listed derivative that covers the U.S. market while excluding thermal coal extraction and coal-fired power plants.  Michael Peters, Member of the Eurex Executive Board: “We want to offer our clients the greatest possible flexibility in ESG investments. Expanding our offering to the U.S. equity market is therefore the next logical step. Other regions and markets will follow in early March with the launch of further ESG contracts.? Eurex provides the broadest offering in listed ESG derivatives. With the STOXX Europe 600 ESG-X Index Futures (FSEG), launched on 18 February 2019 and based on STOXX’s exclusion methodology, more than 700,000 contracts with a notional value of over EUR 10 billion have been traded.  STOXX's method of filtering out undesirable negative components from a known benchmark offers a transparent and comprehensible approach, with a low tracking error to the respective parent index. Resulting ESG indexes are easy to implement as benchmarks for asset holders and are well suited as underlying for ETFs, derivatives or structured products. The Metzler Wertsicherungsfonds 90 ESG (ISIN: DE000A2PPJG8), which was recently approved for distribution in Germany and Austria, demonstrates that investment companies are increasingly using Eurex ESG derivatives to implement sustainable investment strategies without negative effects on returns. It is the first mutual fund in Germany to combine value protection and ESG integration using futures on the STOXX Europe 600 ESG-X.

Morgan ?one of the Eurex Partnership Program design partners and member of the new Repo Board Advisory Committee ?has successfully completed onboarding for Eurex GC Pooling as a pilot client for balance sheet netting, a joint offering from Eurex Repo and Clearstream. This was a major step in rolling out additional balance sheet netting opportunities between the GC Pooling and Repo (GC & Special) market for Eurex Repo clients. GC Pooling is a highly liquid market for secured funding and offers the possibility of reusing received collateral for further money market transactions. Balance sheet netting allows market participants to offset certain securities finance transactions against one another and, as such, is an important way to reduce balance sheet consumption. “The established volumes of GC Pooling, when combined with the possibility of more efficient netting, should be a positive driver on the overall repo specials market volumes on the Eurex platform. We welcome this exciting development which closes the loop on the ability to net balance sheet between GC Pooling and Specials.?says Lav Lukic, Global Head of Rates Repo Trading at J.P. Morgan “We greatly appreciate J.P Morgan’s support for initiatives such as our Partnership Program and onboarding them as a client for Eurex GC Pooling with balance sheet netting is just the latest successful cooperation between us,?says Frank Gast, Managing Director at Eurex Repo and Head of Sales Europe ?Fixed Income, Funding & Financing. “Together with Clearstream, we are looking forward to onboarding and setting up more clients on this service in the coming weeks.? Tilman Fechter, Head of Banking, Funding & Financing at Clearstream adds: “The efficient use of balance sheet is more critical to the market than ever. We are delighted to support J.P. Morgan with the newly developed solution that enables offset of GC Pooling trades vs specials traded on Eurex Repo and will continue to work towards innovative solutions in the securities finance space.?
