Reuters - SocGen builds Paris clearing hub

Societe Generale

Societe Generale is opening a Paris hub this month to clear derivatives in the European Union in the latest sign of euro business moving from Britain to the bloc ahead of Brexit.

Reuters reports that the bank said the new unit would join several clearing houses, including the London Stock Exchange’s LCH SA in Paris and Deutsche Boerse’s Eurex Clearing in Frankfurt.

Customers were asking for their trades at the bank to be cleared in the EU, a SocGen spokeswoman said. LCH SA will be used for clearing credit default swaps, and Eurex will clear interest rate swaps (IRS), she said.
