Post-Trade - Clearing and Settlement

Our post-trade partners

We have partnered with leading post-trade providers to provide for the clearing and settlement of trades executed on our markets. Eurex Clearing AG is the CCP for the ISE which enhances market efficiency. Our clearing members benefit from Eurex's clearing technologies and innovative risk management tools.

CREST, operated by Euroclear UK & Ireland, is the settlement system for Irish equities. It is one of the world’s largest and most technically advanced settlement systems. 

Become a clearing or settlement member

Trading members can opt to clear and/or settle their own trades. Alternatively, they can appoint an ISE clearing or settlement member to carry out one or both of these activities on their behalf.

Clearing Conditions


To support timely settlement, we have a buy-in process operated by Eurex Clearing AG. If settlement is not completed by the Intended Settlement Date (ISD) the buy-in process will commence and operate as follows:

  1. If settlement is still outstanding, a buy-in auction will take place on ISD+4
  2. If this auction is unsuccessful and settlement is still outstanding on ISD+8, a cash settlement will be performed

Members interested in becoming buy-in participants should contact us to discuss their options.

Optional clearing services for trading members

We offer the following optional clearing services. These allow trading members to enhance the resilience of their emergency arrangements.

  1. Individual Clearing Model - ensures that positions and collateral are segregated for each NCM from the CM's proprietary positions
  2. Dual General Clearing Member - enables an NCM to set-up a second and alternative GCM relationship for clearing ISE CCP trades

Please contact us if you are considering availing of one of these options.
