Deutsche Börse Breakfast Briefing "Securities Lending CCP - one year on"

On Wednesday, 22 November 2017, Deutsche Börse hosted the Global Funding & Financing Breakfast Briefing on Securities Lending in London with over 40 leading market participants attending a session to hear about the progress and innovation that has materialised over the past twelve months for Eurex Clearing’s Lending CCP.

Erik Müller, CEO of Eurex Clearing, welcomed the guests and gave an insightful overview on recent market developments, and how a forward-looking Deutsche Börse Group has demonstrated its partnership with leading market participants in a joint commitment towards the financial markets. Müller outlined Eurex Clearing’s unique position as the only infrastructure provider with an integrated clearing offering across derivatives, equities, securities lending and repo transactions to provide advanced solutions to clients that benefit the overall market.

Next, Marcel Naas, Global Head Funding & Financing of Deutsche Börse Group, discussed GFF’s role in providing improved funding, financing and collateral management solutions and described how participants are taking advantage of increased capital and operational efficiencies across all trading, clearing and collateral management activities.

Following on, Jonathan Lombardo, SVP Sales Global Funding & Financing, explained how the Lending CCP innovative developments undertaken over the course of the last twelve months have led to significant progress with lenders and outlined the steps and milestones for future enhancements planned for the service.

The culmination of the event was a panel discussion with industry stakeholders represented by BNY Mellon, BlackRock, Citi, eSecLending and PGGM. The focus of the discussion centred on the various phases in how Agent Lenders, Asset Managers and Investment Banks are strategically reacting to market developments by positively bringing liquidity to the Lending CCP.
