Options Clearing Corporation revises brand identity

Reflecting its more diverse suite of clearing solutions, the Options Clearing Corporation has revised its brand identity and will now be known as OCC. It has, of course, been informally known as OCC for 35 years, so the change, along with the slightly revised logo, more closely represents the evolution taking place at OCC, and in the marketplaces it serves. Clearing US exchange-listed options remains the core business, but OCC offers more clearing solutions than the name Options Clearing Corporation implies. In fact, OCC provides central counterparty clearing and settlement services to 15 exchanges and trading platforms for options, financial and commodity futures, security futures and securities lending transactions.
