Clearing

Equity instruments and derivatives traded on Oslo Børs, Oslo Axess and Oslo Connect are cleared through a Central Counterparty (CCP) - a clearing house. Consequently, members must set up clearing arrangement in order to trade these products on the Oslo Børs marketplaces.

Clearing

Clearing entails an organisation to act as an intermediary, assuming the role of a buyer (to the seller) and seller (to the buyer) for transactions, in order to reconcile orders and also guarantee for settlement and delivery of securities between the transacting parties.

Central Counterparties (CCPs)

Central Counterparties wishing to clear transactions in equity instruments and derivatives on any of Oslo Børs’ marketplaces must hold the necessary authorizations and approvals from relevant authorities, to conduct clearing (for each specific instrument group) in Norway, and must also enter into clearing agreement(s) with Oslo Børs.
