KBOFX Clearing

KBOFX Clearing ensures the implementation of globally acknowledged guidelines for risk management, margin, and settlement. These standards have gained international recognition and are strictly enforced by the organization. By adhering to these regulations, KBOFX Clearing aims to maintain transparency and stability in the financial markets.

All contract trading transactions in the KBOFX Clearing system are warranted by Clearing members and KBOFX Clearing, only after the contract has been agreed upon and cleared. To ensure that transactions have a solid financial foundation behind them when they are made, all Exchange participants are required to process them through KBOFX Clearing members.

After approval of the contract for clearing, KBOFX Clearing undertakes the role of both buyer and seller. It is required for KBOFX Clearing to hold all positions related to members' accounts regardless of their affiliation as another member, a customer, a non-member or an account within membership clearance. In essence, responsibilities such as maintaining a clearing member's account arrangements along with ensuring payments and liabilities fall under the purview of KBOFX clearing services.


In Japan's financial markets, KBOFX clearing and settlement services are essential for lowering counterparty and systemic risk and boosting efficiency for traders and end users.

The Clearing House of KBOFX plays a vital part in aiding transactions by acting as the intermediary between buyers and sellers within their specific markets. As central counterparties (CCPs), KBOFX’s Clearing House undertakes both roles - seller to every buyer and buyer to every seller. This setup assists in reducing counterparty risk - the possibility that one party may neglect their obligations - by ensuring the fulfilment of contractual duties from both parties involved. The role ensures peace of mind for market participants since it assures trade completion while providing an added layer of security against any mishaps or defaults during deals conducted through them.
