The new fee structure will be implemented from the 1st of May 2012 and includes the following elements:
- A new common clearing transaction fee structure for all types of clearing members
- A major decrease for the fixed fee per transaction to NOK 0.35 (before NOK 0.55 or higher)
- A harmonization of the basis point fee to 0.08 bps on the value traded (before from 0.065 to 0.16)
- A reduction in the fixed membership fee element for Direct Clearing Members and General Clearing Members
- An introduction of a fixed fee element for Non Clearing members (NCM)
The new fee structure:
|Membership fee (monthly)||10,000 NOK||25,000 NOK|
|Non Clearing Member membership fee (monthly)||5,000 NOK|
|Clearing transaction fee||0.35 NOK /transaction or 0.08 bps on the value traded||0.35 NOK /transaction or 0.08 bps on the value traded|
|Settlement fee||20 NOK per settlement||20 NOK per settlement|
As before, all customers can choose between the two types of the clearing transaction fee: A fixed fee per transaction or a variable basis point fee on the value traded. The type of transaction fee can be changed on a quarterly basis. GCMs or DCMs may as before choose different transaction fee types per clearing account and/or NCM.
All clearing members will before the 27th of April be contacted by Oslo Clearing in order to change to the best possible clearing transaction fee for their customers from the 1st of May.
