DCMs can clear their own business and those of affiliated DC Market Participants. They may also clear for any undisclosed clients and/or DCs.

OTC and Securities Lending DCMs may only clear proprietary business.

General Clearing Membership (GCMs)
GCMs may clear their own business and those of all clients.

FCM Clearing Membership
For clearing of Swap Transactions through Eurex Clearing AG, FCM (Futures Commission Merchant) Clearing Members act as agents on behalf of their FCM Clients (U.S. persons and non-U.S. persons) and, if applicable, for their own account.
