BNY Mellon clears first European repo trades via Eurex

Eurex Clearing announced it’s been selected as the first clearing house in Europe to centrally clear repo transactions for BNY Mellon.

Eurex’s repo markets allow clients to trade repos with over 160 registered participants. This includes commercial and central banks, as well as government financing agencies and a broad range of supranational organizations. They help market participants to efficiently and securely raise or place cash against more than 13,000 domestic and international securities.

Frank Gast, member of the Management Board of Eurex Repo, said in a statement: “The opportunities in the European repo market are huge and Eurex is excited to support BNY Mellon with our centrally cleared and innovative offerings. We welcome BNY Mellon as a Trading and Clearing Member of Eurex Repo and Eurex Clearing.”

Björn Storim, CEO of BNY Mellon’s European bank, said in a statement: “We are pleased to become a trading and clearing member at Eurex. Access to Eurex enhances our overall liquidity management tool kit. The demand for European repo is continuously increasing and this important milestone supports us in expanding our business and risk management capabilities in Europe.”

With the current market environment, targeted longer term refinancing operations (TLTRO) repayments, and further reduction of excess liquidity, Eurex is seeing a significant increase in trading activities and reaching new record volumes in its cleared repo markets. The total traded repo volume on Eurex across all markets has doubled this year (January to August 2023) compared to the same period in 2022. GC Pooling rose by 270% and the Repo Market by around 30%. Average Daily Term-adjusted trading volume (single counted) also reached record levels of about €340 billion ($362.9bn) which is an increase of more than 70% compared to same period last year. Looking only at the buy side, total traded repo volume increased 265% year-on-year during the same period.
