Deutsche Boerse's Eurex Clearing plans to roll out clearing for over-the-counter interest-rate swaps in late March. The central counterparty will offer full segregation of client collateral as it adapts to the landscape after MF Global Holdings collapsed. "Clients have recognized in the past few months that individual segregation secures their collateral and ensures portability after a default of their clearing member. That is one of the most important aspects of the segregation offering," said Jens Quiram, project manager for client-asset protection at Eurex Clearing.
