Exchange Membership

Exchange Membership

Institutions wishing to trade directly at Eurex via the Eurex integrated trading and clearing system must be admitted as Eurex trading members. Companies may apply for trading admission as long as they fulfill the membership conditions. Eurex does not permit personal memberships. However, once a company becomes a Eurex member, Eurex does not limit the number of registered traders on its behalf.

Exchange members who seek trading participation only are so-called Non-Clearing Members (NCMs). NCMs take part in the clearing process indirectly via a NCM-Clearing Member Agreement with a Clearing Member and Eurex Clearing AG. Members who wish to take part in the clearing process as Direct Clearing Member (DCM) or General Clearing Member (GCM) need to apply for a Clearing License.

Additionally, all exchange members may apply for a Market Maker license. Supplementary approvals for the use of quote machines, electronic eyes, order routing systems, OTC Facilities or trading screens in branch offices are possible.

Companies considering Eurex membership or Clearing Licenses should contact Eurex Customer Support. A meeting will be arranged in order to discuss membership procedures in detail and review application forms. A dedicated Eurex contact person will coordinate all process steps necessary for the admission and connection.
