Clearing Technology

ICE Clear Europe's primary clearing systems currently consist of the following integrated systems:

  • Extensible Clearing System (ECS)
    Provides functionality for position maintenance (including close-outs), options exercise and delivery, in addition to cash and collateral management.
  • Managed File Transfer System (MFT)
    Provides access to all clearing reports and data files. (formerly AFTS)
  • SWIFT
    ICE communicates with its payment banks by using the SWIFT communications network and standard form payment messages, which facilitates a high degree of straight-through-processing to the payment bank providers.
  • ICE Front-End Clearing (ICE FEC)
    A single user interface, offering functions to view and manage trades (update, split, group and adjust), transfers (create, accept/reject and modify), allocations (create, modify and reverse) and claims (accept/reject, update and re-allocate).
