LCH ForexClear, the leading multi-asset clearing house for foreign exchange (FX) instruments, announced on Monday that Schroders, an asset management company with $731.6 billion of wealth under administration, became the first asset manager from Europe to use its clearing services.

According to the press releases, Schroders already cleared non-deliverable forward (NDF) trades via LCH ForexClear across a wide range of Latam and Asian currency pairs. The trades were facilitated by Citi, a clearing member of ForexClear.

“Implementing ForexClear is an important step in increasing our central clearing capabilities for our global clients. ForexClear offers increased transparency, reduces counterparty risk and strengthens liquidity in the FX market. Schroders are delighted to be the first European asset manager utilising this service and will be looking to increase our client and clearing broker usage over the coming months,” Stephanie Whitford, the Global Head of Derivatives Services at Schroders, said.

LCH ForexClear with Record Numbers

The fact that one of the leading asset managers from Europe decided to become one of LCH ForexClear’s clients confirms the company’s dynamic growth of customer base. It reported a record $370 billion in non-deliverable FX clearing volumes during the first nine months of 2022, rising 110% compared to the same period a year earlier.

Q3 2022 alone brought another record volume for non-deliverable FX clearing of $140 billion, marking a rise of 146% year-over-year (YoY).

“With Phase 6 of the Uncleared Margin Rules implemented from September 2022, ForexClear has seen a growing number of firms choose to clear their FX trades. We warmly welcome Schroders as the first European asset manager as it looks to benefit from the margin, capital, operational and credit efficiencies available through FX clearing. We look forward to partnering with Schroders and others in expanding our product offering from NDFs to also include Options, Forwards & Swaps,” James Pearson, the Head of LCH ForexClear, said.

Year-to-date (YTD), LCH ForexClear achieved $19.1 trillion cleared in total notional (+17% YoY).

ForexClear services were launched by LCH (previously LCH.Clearnet) back in 2012, supported initially by 14 major market participants. Currently, it associates more than 320 clearing members.
