Clearing House

Established in 2009 as the world’s first clearing house for credit default swaps, ICE Clear Credit was part of our response to calls from regulators for risk management in the CDS markets following the financial crisis. ICE Clear Credit provides a specialized risk management infrastructure for dealers and clients, leveraging the legal framework, treasury systems and trade warehousing systems currently in use by the industry.

ICE Clear Europe was established in 2008 to provide central counterparty clearing services for ICE’s global energy markets. Today ICE Clear Europe provides secure, capital efficient clearing, risk management and physical delivery services for ICE markets across interest rate, equity index, agricultural and energy derivatives, as well as European credit default swaps (CDS).
