Operating under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), OCC issues and clears U.S.-listed options and futures on a number of underlying financial assets including common stocks, currencies and stock indexes. OCC’s clearing membership consists of approximately 100 of the largest U.S. broker-dealers, U.S. futures commission merchants and non-U.S. securities firms representing both professional traders and public customers. OCC provides clearing services for options, financial and commodity futures, and securities lending transactions. OCC primarily services clearing members established in the US, although it does also provide services to clearing members from Canada. The OCC is recognised in Europe as a Tier 1 third-country CCP.
