Below you can read exactly what a clearing institution does. And what you can find in this register. Finally, we will explain how you can search the register.
A clearing institution performs a buffer function in stock exchange trading between a securities trader and a central counterparty. The clearing institution acts as a guarantor for the trader, even if it cannot fulfil its obligations. Banks may also carry out clearing activities. Read more about the supervision of clearing institutions.
Clearing institutions wishing to operate in the Netherlands must have a licence from DNB. The register lists all authorised clearing institutions.
Before entering a name, you may wish to select a financial service from the “Financial service” dropdown list. Then enter a name or part thereof in the “Statutory name / trade name” search field and click on Search. If you are unsure about the correct spelling of a firm’s name, use an asterisk (*) for part of the name. If you leave the search field empty, your search will produce the full list. If you then click on a search result, you will see the details for that firm.
