LCH.Clearnet Ltd Opening Days 2012

LCH.Clearnet Ltd (LCH.Clearnet) will be open for business on the UK Bank Holidays in 2012 as detailed in the Service Opening Table below.

This circular does not provide an exhaustive list of the individual markets/exchanges opening dates - please refer to the market/exchange notices for this information.  LCH.Clearnet will be open on all weekdays not specifically mentioned in the Service Opening table.

Cash Movements on UK Bank Holidays

On any day where LCH.Clearnet is open, Clearing Members will be required to meet PPS calls, to cover the previous day’s end of day positions.  Furthermore, Clearing Members with open positions on an exchange/market that is open for business will be obliged to meet intra-day margin calls as required.  Clearing Members must therefore ensure that their PPS accounts are funded accordingly.

For example 7 May 2012 is a UK Bank Holiday and a Clearing Member is called £100,000.00 relating to variation margin from the previous day’s business.  The member’s PPS Bank will be required to irrevocably confirm payment on 7 May 2012, however, the amount will not be debited from the Clearing Members bank account until the following business day (i.e. 8 May 2012).
