About Us

The markets’ partner. Your clearing house.

What we do

Welcome to LCH. We are a leading Rates and multi-asset clearing house that provides proven risk management capabilities across a range of asset classes, including OTC and listed Interest Rates, Fixed Income, FX, CDS, Equities, and Commodities. 

As a clearing house, we stand as a central counterparty (CCP), acting as a buyer to every seller and a seller to every buyer. Put simply, we make financial markets safer.

It’s not only the breadth of our product offering that sets us apart from our competitors, it’s also our commitment to working with our members, partnering to develop the services and tools you need to make your business more efficient and to make financial markets safer for us all. 

Our passion for and dedication to providing the highest standard of risk management are manifest in everything we do at LCH.

You can see it in our innovative compression tools and in solutions such as LCH Spider, our automated portfolio margining service, which delivers greater capital efficiencies for our members. And you can read it in our thought leadership on the most pressing issues facing our industry, such as standardised clearing house stress testing and CCP recovery and resolution.

As the markets’ partner, LCH operates an open access model, offering a range of execution venues and delivering unprecedented choice and efficiencies to the marketplace.
