Nord Pool would like to inform UK members of a change in the current margin model.
From 18 December 2018 the day factor risk parameter will remain at the previously announced seasonal adjusted level of three days, going forward. We will no longer collateralise a member’s net seller position and will replace the fixed base collateral requirement with a minimum requirement which is the GBP equivalent of 30,000 EUR.
The reason for this change for UK members is to consolidate our margin model across all Nord Pool markets.
The adjusted parameters are also published online.
