Unified collateral pool

The "Unified Collateral Pool" technology allows Clearing Members to store collateral for transactions on the FX, stock, derivatives and standardised derivatives markets in a single account to reduce the costs of transactions on the markets of the Moscow Exchange Group by providing the Clearing Centre with unique clearing functionality:

A Unified Trading and Clearing Account of a Clearing Member (a set of accounts in all currencies, securities, precious metals) for managing Individual Clearing collateral (taking into account the segregation of own, client and control funds) on the securities, FX, derivatives and standardised derivatives markets.

Unified rules and procedures for the acceptance, evaluation and use of collateral on the securities, FX, derivatives and standardised derivatives markets.

All assets accepted as collateral for the fulfilment of obligations under transactions with partial collateral on the stock market are accepted as collateral recorded in the Settlement Account of the Unified Pool.

Optimisation of collateral requirements when offsetting multidirectional positions in one instrument on different markets where the Unified Pool Settlement Code is extended allows more efficient use of collateral.

Netting of obligations and claims from transactions concluded on the securities, FX, derivatives and standardised derivatives markets, using assets recorded in the Trading and Clearing Account of the Unified Pool.

The time of clearing sessions in the Settlement Account of the Unified Pool does not change and complies with the regulations of the relevant market.

* Netting is executed when settling trades, executed on the fx, securities and derivatives markets
