Join a Unique Network

The Swiss Stock Exchange is a unique network that includes national and international General Clearing Members alongside our trading participants. General Clearing Members provide clearing for CCP-eligible securities trading on our exchange. Clearing is a securities risk management process, supported by a central counterparty (CCP). SIX x-clear AG, LCH Ltd and EuroCCP act as central counterparties and offer comprehensive clearing services.

Your Benefits on the Swiss Stock Exchange

Being a General Clearing Member

A General Clearing Member provides clearing services for the trading participants in CCP-eligible securities. Trades concluded on the Swiss Stock Exchange are cleared via a central counterparty (CCP). The clearing houses SIX x-clear AG, LCH Ltd and EuroCCP provide this service as partners of SIX Swiss Exchange AG.

A General Clearing Member must also be a participant of a clearing house (SIX x-clear AG, LCH Ltd and EuroCCP). It does not necessarily need a data link to the SWXess trading platform. Trading participants of the Swiss Stock Exchange can also act as General Clearing Members.
