Today, ECC provides clearing and settlement services for 8 exchanges and is open for further partners. ECC’s exchange partners may also participate in the value chain of the clearing house which is reflected in the current shareholder structure.
EEX AG holds 100 percent of the shares in ECC.
ECC has a wholly owned subsidiary in Luxembourg. European Commodity Clearing Luxembourg S.á.r.l. (ECC Lux) started operations in 2009. It steps into the delivery chain as an additional contractual partner in respect to the settlement of deliveries of commodities on the Spot Market which are settled by ECC.
