CurveGlobal in partnership with LSEDM wins “Best New Exchange”
CurveGlobal, an interest rate derivatives venture between London Stock Exchange Group, CBOE, and a number of leading dealer banks, was recognised as "Best New Exchange" at the 2017 FOW (Futures & Options World) International Awards event in London.
The annual FOW International Awards recognises the best performance in the cleared derivatives industry. The "Best New Exchange" winner is selected by a jury of industry experts, independent of the FOW team. The criteria for this category includes being an exchange or trading platform that launched within the review period, that has provided the market with new or innovative product(s) that established a good reputation and generated solid trading volumes.
In less than a year, CurveGlobal in partnership with LSEDM has become a credible and powerful alternative to the legacy monopolies that have dominated the futures markets for decades. Open interest has doubled in the last six months reaching a record-breaking 161,664 contracts.*
“We are very honoured to win this award and be recognised as Best New Exchange by industry experts,” says Andy Ross, CEO of CurveGlobal. “CurveGlobal, in partnership with LSEDM, is not only unique in providing its service on an open access basis, but unlike existing platforms, it delivers a low-cost vehicle for accessing the markets. This award is a testament to the success we have had in the past year.”
Thank you to all who have supported us. We look forward to seeing what 2018 has in store.
