TriOptima announces today that it has cooperated with Japanese Securities Clearing Corporation (JSCC) to complete the first compression cycle for cleared JPY interest rate swaps in JSCC.

New York/London – December 16, 2014 TriOptima announces today that it has cooperated with Japanese Securities Clearing Corporation (JSCC) to complete the first compression cycle for cleared JPY interest rate swaps in JSCC.

Fourteen major Japanese and international financial institutions eliminated JPY 9.86 Trillion ($82.24 Billion) in notional principal in JSCC’s first triReduce multilateral risk-constrained compression cycle.

Eliminating notional principal reduces operational risk and contributes to complying with Basel III leverage ratio requirements and overall stability in the global financial system.

“We look forward to working together with JSCC to offer multilateral compression to its members on a regular basis,” said Peter Weibel, CEO of triReduce.

Currently TriOptima offers compression in several clearinghouses for cleared interest rate swaps and for uncleared swaps in 27 currencies globally.
