Reuters exclusively reports French bankers seek EU law to move euro clearing from London

Reuters exclusively reported that France’s banking industry body wants a new European Union law that would force non-EU banks to shift swathes of euro derivatives clearing from the City of London to Frankfurt.

Brussels is now targeting euro clearing and last week began a fact-finding mission by meeting with banks.
