Fcms/compensation clearing companies have the option to apply traditional risk-based credit limits for customers or subscribers via our native member management console or third-party credit hub. A FCM/Clearing clearing company is an entity that meets clearing requirements for clearing houses, which has the authority to remove any of the clearten swaps for and on behalf of TraditionSEF participants and customers mentioned by TraditionSEF for the trading of TraditionSEF. A FCM may be either a compensatory member of one or more exchanges (a “clearing-FCM”) or a non-clearing member company (FCM non-clearing) (FCM). Compensation fcms are required to hold large deposits with the clearing house of which it is exchanged. A non-clearingfc must evacuate its customers` trades through a compensation FCM.
In Europe, FCM is analogous to countervailing members of the futures market. In particular, FCM allows farmers and businesses (utility companies) to hedge their risks and allow clients access to stock markets and clearing houses. They can be subsidiaries of large financial firms or small independent companies. In recent years, and especially since the passage of the Dodd-Frank legislation in 2010, the number of FCM, especially small independents, has decreased as a result of the regulatory effort. FCM clearing companies are essential to compliance with the CFTC`s pre-boursite credit quality audit prior to the execution of clear swaps. Each participant and client must have risk-based limits through their clearing and credit company prior to awarding contracts for cleared cléar swap swaps on TraditionSEF.
