CME Clearing Europe Fees and Charging Policy

Transparent Fees that Focus on Transactions

Our policy is that our fees should be as transparent as possible and should predominantly relate to transactions. Some clearing houses focus on less-than-transparent earnings on cash investments. Our view is that the treasury function is a risk management activity that must be managed efficiently by the clearing house to generate a low-risk return for the benefit of participants; and that a clearing house’s share of treasury earnings should be stated up-front.

Shareholding requirement: none.

Annual membership fee: none.
