Managing risk is an essential function of ECC, a Central Counterparty (CCP) licensed under the strict European financial market regulations for CCPs (EMIR). ECC constantly reviews and improves its methods and risk tools to provide state-of-the-art risk management. In the development of its margin system ECC cooperates closely with partner exchanges, clearing members and the financial supervisory authority.
