Assessment of ASX Clearing and Settlement Facilities September 2021

This report presents the annual Assessment by the Bank of the ASX clearing and settlement (CS) facilities: two central counterparties – ASX Clear and ASX Clear (Futures) – and two securities settlement facilities – ASX Settlement and Austraclear. On balance, the Bank has concluded that the facilities have conducted their affairs in a way that promotes overall stability in the Australian financial system. However, ASX will need to place a high priority on addressing recommendations related to margin at ASX Clear (Futures) and operational risk at all of the ASX CS facilities.
