03/02/2015 - Baseline report on solutions for the posting of non-cash collateral to central counterparties by pension scheme arrangements - A report for DG Market

Europe Economics developed a study (executive summary only) for DG MARKT (now DG FISMA) on the potential impact of pension funds having to post cash collateral in clearing their OTC derivatives. This work models the effect of ending the current temporary exemption to the application of some of EMIR’s requirements. We worked with Bourse Consult on this project, which also considered the feasibility of various alternative solutions to posting cash, and the ability of the market to deliver these. Our work was an input into the European Commission's own report recommending a two year extension of the exemption. EU Commissioner for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union, Jonathan Hill said: “Today's report sets out a number of potential ways to facilitate central clearing for pension funds. But none of them is straightforward and it is sensible to take more time to develop a solution which is proportionate.”
