Together with various firms and institutional asset managers, PensionsEurope, Pensioenfederatie, iapf and Insurance and Pension Denmark submitted a joint response to the ESMA consultation on central clearing solution for pension schemes arrangements. The response highlights that if pension funds are required to clear their derivatives and to post cash as variation margin, we need to ensure that liquidity will be granted in the repo markets in times of market distress and set up collateral transformation arrangements with central banks. Central banks would provide a facility that would allow pension funds to transform high quality collateral to cash, at a haircut and cost. A high credit-quality, regulated entity would intermediate between pension funds and central banks. This entity could be an existing CCP, or any other regulated entity set up purely for this purpose
