The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in the US has confirmed Eurex Clearing as a registered derivatives clearing organisation (DCO).

Eurex Clearing initially will offer proprietary OTC (over the counter) clearing services to clearing members domiciled in the US including their US affiliates.
