With the growth of the OTC market, risk exposure and mitigation became harder and harder. This raised the question how to reduce the systematic risk that resulted out of this. The requirement to trade on exchange for a lot of OTC contracts will result in a serious reduction of risk as CCP step in and bilateral contract are no longer needed. This is where MIFID II relies on the provisions made by EMIR with respect to clearing.
