ICE Clear Credit share increasing 1.1% in absolute terms from 2021, with both ICE Clear Europe and LCH CDSClear down, most likely a continued result from the announced closure of Credit Derivatives clearing at ICE Clear Europe from March 2023.

ICE Clear Credit seeming to grab more share as ICE Clear Europe winds down, but a lot of volume yet to find a new home. Monthly volume for Jan 2023 will give a good pointer on whether more of the remianing volumes goes to ICE Clear Credit or LCH CDSClear.
