European Central Counterparty N.V. (EuroCCP) is a central counterparty headquartered in Amsterdam. Central counterparties (CCPs) play a pivotal role in the financial markets by providing assurance that transactions will settle at the agreed price in the event one party defaults on its obligations and increasing netting and settlement efficiencies.
