Derivative Clearing

  • Register with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
  • Select a clearing broker for all clearable trades and the clearing house over which the trade should be cleared
  • Affirm trade details on a matching platform such as MarkitServ
  • Send the trade over to clearing member and the clearing house for clearing
