NOS has today replaced the USD 30 million insurance policy supplied through Global Clearing & Settlement Advisors (“GCSA”), with a parental company guarantee of USD 30 million from OMX AB, a company in the NASDAQ OMX Group. The guarantee is in effect until NOS Clearing ASA is merged with NASDAQ OMX Clearing AB. A loss resulting from a clearing member default in excess of USD 40 million is covered up to 30 million USD by the guarantor. NOS Clearing has for nearly ten years bought Soft Capital insurance from a number of insurers. These policies effectively strengthen the counterpart capital structure of NOS Clearing to the benefit of our clearing members.
