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.
