The London Clearing House and EuroMTS have formed a link arrangement that enables repo trades entered into on the EuroMTS Repo Trading Facility to be routed automatically to the LCH real-time for clearing and settlement within the LCH RepoClear system.
The two companies said the use of LCH as a central counterparty to the EuroMTS RTF would allow those trading repos to do so anonymously. Trading is initially restricted to German government repos, but more products are expected to be added to the service later on.
