ICE Trust would maintain capital that is adequate to cover its start-up costs, projected operational losses, and unanticipated losses and to allow for an orderly wind-down of positions if confronted with the need to cease operations. In assessing the adequacy of ICE Trust’s capital levels, the Board has taken into account the financial resources maintained by ICE Trust to enable it to withstand a default in extreme but plausible market conditions by the participant to which it has the largest exposure.14 [Footnote 14. RCCP at 23. End footnote 14.] For ICE Trust, as for many CCPs, these resources include margin collateral posted by participants based on the value and risk associated with their open positions and participants’ contributions to a guaranty fund. The Board expects ICE Trust at all times to maintain financial resources commensurate with the level and nature of the risks to which it is exposed. If a participant defaults, ICE Trust would draw on margin collateral posted by the participant. If the margin collateral is insufficient, ICE Trust would then look to the defaulting participant’s guaranty fund contribution. Should the defaulting participant’s margin collateral and guaranty fund contribution be insufficient to cover any losses on the defaulted obligations, ICE Trust would be authorized to use, as needed, other participants’ guaranty fund contributions to satisfy any remaining obligations of the defaulting party. If the guaranty fund in total is inadequate to cover losses on the defaulted obligations, ICE Trust would have the ability to assess additional guaranty fund contributions on nondefaulting participants.
