Tokyo – 08 December, 2015 TriOptima announces that JSCC members terminated ¥72.5 trillion in the first unlinked compression cycle for JPY interest rate swaps (IRS) in JSCC. This is an increase of 44.4% over the notional terminated in September’s compression cycle. Since January 2015, triReduce compression cycles have reduced JSCC ¥ IRS notional outstanding by ¥316.5 trillion.

“As we anticipated, the unlinking of trades in JSCC resulted in an increase in notional terminated. The unlinking also resulted in the greatest number of trades terminated since we started,” said Takehiro Hosomura, Director of OTC Derivatives Clearing Service at JSCC. “Unlinking combined with the growing participation of our clearinghouse members will continue to generate further increases as reflected in this year’s results.”

“We continue to work with JSCC and with all participants to facilitate compression in the clearinghouse,” said Yutaka Imanishi. “The JSCC members are eager to continue compression, increasing both the number of cycle participants and the number of trades submitted.”
