Frontclear provides Basel III compliant first demand irrevocable guarantees. Our guarantees are in turn counter-guaranteed by KfW, a AAA-rated financial institution.

In addition to the provision of guarantees to enable bilateral over-the-counter transactions, Frontclear provides risk capital to Financial Infrastructure Providers in emerging and frontier markets.
