Eurex is part of the Deutsche Börse Group, granting Natixis a number of advantages such as an integrated cross-product clearing service designed for streamlined securities lending, repo and derivatives.
According to Gregoire Froehlich, trader in securities lending and borrowing at Natixis, in a recent statement on the membership, “The CCP model for Natixis will not only help manage the rising burden of balance sheet regulation and costs, we believe it will also prompt new stock-lending structures and business opportunities with non-standard profile counterparties.”
“Going live with EurexOTC Clear is a key milestone in our strategy of offering our clients a large choice of CCPs ahead of the EMIR mandatory clearing roll-out. We are delighted that capital efficiency, cross margining and collateral management mechanisms proposed by EurexClearing are now available to both Natixis and its clients,” added Nicolas Chauvet, Head of Derivatives, Treasury and Forex Operations at Natixis.
