Capital Efficiencies: Portfolio Margining, Coupon Blending and Compression

CME Group delivers unparalleled capital efficiencies to our customers through portfolio margining of cleared interest rate swaps, swaptions and futures, and also via notional reduction through coupon blending and multilateral compression.

Portfolio Margining

  • Portfolio margining with CME Group enables all 21 OTC IRS currencies to be margined versus swaptions, Eurodollars, MAC Swap Futures, Treasuries and Fed Funds.
  • CME Group portfolio margining is supported by 15 live clearing members and used by 11 house accounts, whilst 477 customer accounts are benefiting from the solution.
  • Total risk reductions now account for over $2.7 billion in initial margin savings.

Compression Services

As market participants evolve and respond to the new capital regime, CME Group's innovative compression offerings continue to develop and to provide efficiencies for the OTC interest rate swap market:

Coupon Blending

  • CME Group launched coupon blending in June 2014 and it is available for both members, house accounts and end user customers.
  • Since inception, we have run blending across 16 currencies and 13 dealers, $22.6 trillion gross notional has been reduced and over 339,788 line items have been compressed.

Multilateral Compression - TriOptima TriReduce

  • We have completed 17 compression runs across USD, EUR, MXN, GBP and JPY reducing gross notional by $12.5 trillion USDE and removing over 429,579 line items.
  • Additional cycles and currencies are planned for 2017.
