EFET report shows eSM improves OTC liquidity and reduces credit risk

Featured Image

Today, EFET has launched a report of remarkable significance to the OTC gas and power markets. The study was conducted by PwC and together with 6 European energy companies investigates the impact of earlier settlement dates. 

Key findings are:

  1. A change to earlier settlement improves market participants’ and thus market liquidity significantly.
  2. The benefits are greatest for companies moving to daily settlement (delivery +2 days). Net sellers see most significant financial benefits, however all participants see benefits.
  3. An earlier settlement eases access for all companies to the OTC market.
    • Reduced credit risk exposure due to earlier payments.
    • Cash-flow benefit from earlier repayment of outstanding margin.
    • Increased counterparty credit headroom, facilitating increased trading activity.
  4. The EFET standard for electronic Settlement Matching (eSM) is already available and in productive use. Earlier settlements complement eSM.
