Clearing

Introduction to Clearing

classroom training

We describe why a clearinghouse is necessary for a secure market place and what needs to be in place to accomplish the stability. The member and account structure is essential for a clearinghouse for both position keeping and margin calculations, which we examine. The chain of participants who interact in the settlement and delivery chain is explored thoroughly. Learn why margin is calculated and how the requirements are covered by collateral of different kinds. 

The course is held at Nasdaq Stockholm, Tullvaktsvägen 15.

Introduction to SPAN

Derivatives, such as Futures and Options, are agreements between two parties where either both parties are obliged to fulfill their agreement or only one of them. A Clearinghouse centralizes the counterparty risk. To ensure that all obligations are met, the clearinghouse requires collateral to cover for potential defaults. The Margin requirement is calculated with a Margin method. One such method is SPAN®, Standard Portfolio Analysis of Risk. 

The course is held at Nasdaq Stockholm, Tullvaktsvägen 15.
