Open Access Derivatives Project CurveGlobal Goes Live

CurveGlobal is an interest rates derivatives venture that will offer low fees and no market data charges

London Stock Exchange

During its first phase, CurveGlobal will offer trading in Short Term Interest Rate (STIR) futures in Euribor and Short Sterling and Long Term Interest Rate (LTIR) futures in Bund, Bobl, Schatz and Gilts.

CurveGlobal will not charge for market data. Also, it will give access to a single default fund across OTS and listed trades via LCH.

Investors will be able to use LCH's portfolio margining tool, Spider, in order to generate margin offsets against a deep pool of derivatives open interest.

CurveGlobal was supported by major banks, such as Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Citi, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan and Societe Generale, together with the Chicago Board Options Exchange.

Andy Ross, CEO of CurveGlobal said in a statement that CurveGlobal will announce new contracts and products in the near future.

"From launch today, we start with a proven exchange and clearing architecture, as well as access to a deep pool of open risk, totalling over $100 billion in initial margin," he said.

Ross spoke to Dan DeFrancesco on the Waters Wavelength podcast about the launch. You can listen to the entire episode here
