Richard Chambers, global head of Short Macro Trading at Goldman Sachs said:
Becoming a participant of the cross-currency swap service provided by CLS and IHS Markit helps us to further mitigate settlement risk, and we expect to see further operational and funding efficiency benefits as more counterparties join the service.
Keith Tippell, Head of Product, CLS commented:
We are delighted to welcome Goldman Sachs as the latest participant in our cross-currency swaps settlement service. Demand has never been higher from market participants for risk mitigation, liquidity optimization and post-trade efficiency. Further, this demonstrates the benefits we can deliver to our clients by leveraging our unique position as a financial market infrastructure in the FX marketplace and collaborating with established service providers that share the same client base, such as IHS Markit.
Chris Jackson, Managing Director, IHS Markit said:
Our collaboration with CLS is a powerful example of service providers working together to make the swaps market more efficient. As the community of global financial institutions connected by the MarkitSERV network continues to grow, the addition of Goldman Sachs to the cross-currency swaps settlement service demonstrates the industry’s ongoing support for such initiatives.
