Register clearing institutions

What can you find in the register?

A clearing institution contributes to the settlement of securities transactions on a stock exchange by performing a buffer function between the traders (parties allowed access to the market), on the one hand, and a central counterparty, on the other. A clearing institution guarantees the commitments of the traders on whose behalf it acts. Thus, it ensures the settlement of transactions even if the trader on whose behalf it acts is unable to meet his commitments. Finally, banks with a banking licence are also allowed to perform clearing activities.

Licensing requirement
In order to be able to offer clearing services in the Netherlands an undertaking must have obtained a licence.
