The cost associated with using the EquityClear service will depend on the members monthly volumes. All cleared volumes across all the trade sources cleared through the EquityClear service are cumulative. The EquityClear tariff structure supports members existing business whilst incentivising growth.

The average daily volume ("ADV") of the clearing member will be determined by the number of trades cleared throughout the month, then divided by the number of business days in the month. When the ADV has stepped through each band, the cost of clearing and an average unit cost per trade can be derived. Please see example below.

Members can reduce costs further by using the 'family groupings' discount facility that is available upon request.

The fee structure highlights LCH.Clearnet’s commitment to reduce fees and benefit its members. The tariff is structured to incentivise growth and reward those members that use the service.

Please use our user friendly calculator that will assist members with any modeling. Upon entering a member’s volumes the calculator will highlight the associated fee.
