Chicago Fed: The Challenges of Derivatives CCP Interoperability Arrangements

John McPartland and Rebecca Lewis
It has been posited that because central counterparties (CCPs) that clear European securities have established successful interoperability arrangements, European CCPs that clear derivatives contracts should be required to enter into similar interoperability arrangements.

This paper challenges the plausibility of this concept on its daunting operational challenges rather than from a public policy perspective.
