The macrofinancial implications of alternative configurations for access to central counterparties in OTC derivatives markets


  • Bank for International Settlements


The G-20 leaders' commitment that all standardised over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives will be centrally cleared by the end of 2012 is intended to increase the safety and resilience of the global financial system. Achieving these objectives depends importantly on the arrangements through which market participants obtain access to central clearing. Such arrangements could include increased use of existing global CCPs; the establishment of domestic CCPs in a number of jurisdictions; and the possible construction of links between CCPs. This report analyses the potential implications for financial stability and efficiency of these alternative access arrangements to CCPs.
