Our compression service, powered by OSTTRA triReduce, simplifies portfolios by reducing notional exposures and line items for cleared and non-cleared OTC derivative trades.

 

By leveraging multilateral compression opportunities across portfolios, we enable firms to mitigate risk and manage their escalating balance sheet costs, whilst operating against a backdrop of growing resource constraints. Cycles are available for cleared and uncleared interest rate swaps, cross currency swaps, credit default swaps, FX forwards, and commodity swaps.

 

New collateral, clearing, and capital regulations, including SA-CCR, in the U.S., Europe and Asia are driving OTC derivative market participants to shed as much of their gross notional exposure as possible through multilateral portfolio compression. Connectivity with all the major CCPs and infrastructure providers globally means that our clients can seamlessly participate in compression cycles with other market participants throughout the world.

Recognised as the innovator and leader in multilateral portfolio compression, we collaborate with all the major CCPs: LCH SwapClear, CME, JSCC, Eurex, ASX and NASDAQ, and maximise the compression pool available for rates by supporting clearing members, future commission merchants (FCMs)/ clearing brokers (CBs) and clients to all compress in the same cycle.

OSTTRA triReduce FX allows participants to reduce net bilateral exposures by offsetting them with new trades, all in one combined cycle.

The service is available to all CLS settlement members, dealers, prime brokers and CLS third-party clients. Both CLS and non-CLS currency pairs are in scope and our clients can also take advantage of OSTTRA triReduce compression for NDFs and precious metals.

We offer a platform for multiple institutions to regularly compress their portfolios, efficiently fulfilling the ESMA requirements and allowing firms to manage gross notional exposures and redistribute counterparty exposure. Our multilateral compression engine is utilised to reduce outstanding gross notional whilst prioritising compression of outstanding bilateral trades to help reduce bilateral net positions as much as possible, enabling participants to optimise on SA-CCR and reduce gross notional simultaneously.

 

Credit

Enhance the efficiency of your portfolio and maintain operational efficiency and reduce CDS exposure.

Credit compression can be synchronised with our counterparty credit optimisation cycles, powered by OSTTRA triBalance, to gain maximum risk mitigation benefits.
