Financial Safeguards and Counterparty Risk Management
Clearing trades reduces risk. ACCH serves as the counterparty to every trade, mitigating counterparty risk and allowing market participants to trade with transparency and confidence.
Our financial safeguards are critical to fostering trust in the marketplace. In extreme situations, ACCH has a financial safeguards package to minimize market risks. ACCH supports the defaulter pays model and the defaulting party takes the first loss via its own contributions to the default waterfall, prior to using any resources of non-defaulting clearing members. This model limits the likelihood that losses would be extended.
Risk management and financial surveillance are principal functions of ACCH's financial safeguards and customer protections system.
Margins, also known as Performance Bonds, are deposits required to ensure that a trading participant can cover potential losses with its positions. Margins help ensure that clearing members can meet their obligations to their customers and to ACCH. Performance bonds/margins vary according to product and market volatility.
ACCH's margin model will cover almost all anticipated price changes for the products over a given liquidation period. ACCH determines prudent and appropriate margin rates using a combination of quantitative and qualitative metrics.
ACCH adopts a stringent risk management policy for its markets; a framework that is guided by international principles established by CPMI-IOSCO, the Financial Stability Board and global industry best practices.
The financial integrity of trades conducted on the marketplace is assured by means of daily mark-to-market of positions and ensuring strict adherence to transaction guarantee requirements. Clearing Funds are also required by ACCH to uphold membership standards and ensure market stability during periods of volatility.
Our Board of Commissioners and Directors has the duty of representing the balanced interests of the shareholders in attaining long term business and financial objectives and enforcing an oversight framework that ensures the integrity of our markets and business operations.Read more
