impact strategy

Frontclear is strategically focused on developing stable, inclusive and liquid money markets through the powerful combination of guarantees and technical assistance. This is a long-term effort in many country contexts, while those more advanced step in at later stages. A nascent money market may require a possible 10 year commitment. As a conceptual guideline stemming from Frontclear experience to-date, our impact strategy can be divided into 3 evolutionary stages.

mid-development (3-5 years) enable development of on-shore local OTC money markets with domestic guarantee structures: bilateral tradeclear (multiparty) end-target (5-8 years) support the development of local market infrastructure GDP t opening (2-3 years) cross border guarantees: create access knowledge transfer identify barriers build exemplary transactions smart deployment of technical assistance: training legal and regulatory market infrastructure
