"We have successfully achieved the first major step in building a local central counterparty through a significant investment, which is an excellent proof of cooperation and interest in the sustainable and significant development of the capital and energy markets.

The CCP.RO will enhance the liquidity of these markets, and the existence of this institution represents the minimum necessary condition to ensure their healthy evolution", BVB’s Adrian Tanase said.

 

Why is the Central Counterparty important

CCP.RO will host the infrastructure that will relaunch the derivatives market in Romania and will provide new mechanisms for mitigating and transferring the risks for the markets operated by BVB and OPCOM, thus enhancing the confidence and activity in these markets. The CCP will interpose between the parties of the transaction becoming a counterparty for each buyer, respectively the seller, and will guarantee the completion of the settlement of the transaction by applying specific mechanisms for risk management.

For the investors or the participants operating on the local capital market, the existence of the CCP will allow the introduction and development of transactions with derivative financial instruments (having as underlying assets equities, commodities, bonds, indices, exchange rates, etc.).

The next major steps in the activity of the new company concern the preparation of the documentation to receive the authorization of CCP.RO as a central counterparty and to obtain the authorization of operation for this purpose from the Financial Supervisory Authority (ASF). BVB has projected that the first operations carried out through CCP.RO will take place within 16 months from the establishment of the new company.
