Objectives The research project focuses on financial stability issues related to systemic risk and counterparty credit risk in the context of central clearing counterparties. The changes and impact of the new regulatory frameworks (EMIR, Basel III, Dodd-Frank-Act) on the resilience of financial institutions, such as central clearing counterparties and banks, are analysed.
Design / methodology / approach The approach is divided in three different sections. First, the regulatory Basel III framework is used to derive default probabilities for stressed scenarios to assess the financial resilience of a CCP. In a second study, systemic risk is studied by an event study approach.
Empirical findings / expected outputs -In a crisis, central clearing counterparties may become a source of systemic risk.
-Risk management techniques (haircuts on repos, margin collateral haircuts) of central clearing counterparties may lead to procyclicality.
Research contribution / practical implications / Originality This project contributes to the emerging literature on central clearing counterparties. It covers different aspects of central clearing and studies implications for financial stability regulation.
