    Capital rules 'exacerbating' clearing house risks -CFTC commissioner

    Bank capital rules are concentrating risk inside the clearing system and making clearing houses increasingly systemically important, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's Brian Quintenz said on Tuesday. Speaking at a conference hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the Republican commissioner warned that capital rules known as the supplementary leverage ratio have made it too expensive for banks to provide clearing services, leading many to pull out of the business.

    LSE chief says shift in euro clearing would bump up costs

    European Union plans to scrutinise clearing of euro-denominated derivatives outside the bloc could fragment markets and cost EU customers 20 billion euros (£17.8 billion) a year, London Stock Exchange (LSE.L) Chief Executive Xavier Rolet said on Tuesday. The LSE owns LCH in London, the dominant clearing house for interest rate swaps in Europe denominated in euros. The EU plans to propose joint supervision of foreign clearing houses that serve the bloc's customers.

    FCA says sovereign listing plan in line with government policy

    The Financial Conduct Authority said its proposals for listing state-controlled companies such as Saudi Aramco were in line with Britain's aim of London remaining a leading financial centre, raising concerns about whether they were robust enough. The FCA in July proposed the new listing category in a move seen as helping London to court the initial public offering of Aramco, which is likely to be the largest ever IPO.

    Looser rules unlikely to boost U.S. company listings - FTSE Russell CEO

    U.S. policy proposals to cut red tape for public companies are unlikely to boost listings while borrowing rates continue to be low and could increase risks for investors, the chief executive of FTSE Russell, the world's largest index firm, said on Tuesday. On Friday, the U.S. Treasury published a 232-page report proposing sweeping reforms to the country's capital markets, as it looks to implement Republican President Donald Trump’s agenda to promote economic growth by slashing regulation. The report included measures to reduce the disclosure and compliance burden for listed companies and companies seeking listings in a bid to reverse a near 50 percent decline in the number of public companies in the United States over the past 20 years.

    EU lawmakers give tentative nod to Brexit clearing law that could clobber Britain

    European Union lawmakers on Tuesday gave broad support to a law that could end the City of London's global dominance in clearing euro-denominated financial contracts after Brexit. The plan has raised hackles in Britain, where it threatens both job losses and tax revenues. The draft EU law proposes that a foreign clearing house -- which stands between two sides of a transaction to ensure its smooth completion -- must be subject to more intense supervision by the bloc's regulators if it wants to serve customers in the EU.

    Cautious BoE in no rush to restrict algorithmic trading

    The spread of ultra-fast trading in stock, bond and currency markets and accompanying "flash crashes" do not call for immediate action from regulators, a senior Bank of England official said on Friday. Wild share price fluctuations linked to algorithmic trades during a single U.S. session in 2010 triggered alarm among regulators, as did a similar episode in the U.S. bond market four years later. Salmon said there was much evidence that ultra high-speed automated trading by computer algorithms had made markets more efficient, despite the phenomenon of flash crashes it had given rise to.

"Specifically, in my view, we are not yet in a position to rule out that future flash episodes might interact with aspects of financial market infrastructure in a way that gives rise to longer-lasting disruption," he told a conference.

    Bank of England warns on draft law for handling failed clearing houses

    The European Union should not circumvent long-standing principles in insolvency proceedings when allocating losses from a failed clearing house, Bank of England Deputy Governor Jon Cunliffe said on Friday. The bloc is scrutinising a draft law governing the closing down of a struggling clearing house, a third party that comes between both sides of a stock, bond or derivatives trade to ensure completion of the transaction. Cunliffe said the draft law should stick to the legal principle of "no creditor worse off than in insolvency".
