Modifications under implementation

2022:
Amendments of the the Rules of the GPW BondSpot ATS Guarantee Fund entered into force on 25 April 2022 following the decision of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority of 3 March 2022 on the extension of the authorisation to provide clearing services as a CCP to the extent of activities connected with the clearing of repo transactions concluded in organised trading.
The amendments to the regulation are designed to support the start of the clearing of conditional repo transactions which will be concluded in organised trading. KDPW_CCP S.A. will accept for clearing classic repo transactions in Treasury securities registered in KDPW, excluding index-linked bonds. Repo transactions will be covered by the existing transaction clearing liquidity guarantee system organised by KDPW_CCP S.A. from the moment of their acceptance into the KDPW_CCP S.A. clearing system (transactions concluded in organised trading operated by BondSpot S.A. will be covered by the existing GPW BondSpot ATS guarantee fund).

2020:
On 5 October 2020 the amendments of the the Rules of the WSE BondSpot ATS Guarantee Fund entered into force. The amendments are designed to align the Rules with the planned central clearing of Treasury BondSpot Poland transactions in KDPW_CCP S.A. Central clearing will ensure full anonymity of Treasury BondSpot Poland transactions, mitigate the risk of transaction clearing, and eliminate the issue of counterparty risk limits.
As a result, Treasury BondSpot Poland transactions will be covered by the existing guarantee fund securing the clearing of transactions concluded in the alternative trading systems organised by the Warsaw Stock Exchange and BondSpot S.A.
KDPW_CCP S.A. will cover such transactions with standard risk management measures used in organised trading.
