OTC or Listed FX – it’s Your Choice

Whether you are already using exchange-traded FX or you are just starting to consider it, 360T offers you the tools to access the full range of Eurex FX Futures directly from your 360T trading environment. Meanwhile, FX clearing brings many benefits from access to counterparts where you do not have credit or settlement relationships, to the use of a single netting set and counterpart to optimise your operational and margin burden. The overall savings from Clearing can be substantial, with regulation favouring cleared positions over bilaterally held, in terms of beneficial capital efficiency, lower margin calculations, and no inclusion of cleared FX in your AANA calculations to determine your UMR burden. However, as you still need to consider what liquidity you face when clearing, 360T gives you the tools you need to use bilateral pricing, exchange pricing, or even transactions that combine both bilateral and cleared, to achieve your best cleared trading outcome.
