BGC's SEF Connects with Traiana CreditLink

Traiana is one of the primary credit-checking facilities for the electronic derivatives market.

BGC Partners has announced that its swap execution facility (SEF), BGC Derivatives Markets, can now utilize pre-trade credit checks at Traiana's CreditLink facility, before passing on trades for third-party clearing.

The SEF has already handled interest-rate swap transactions using the facility. Trades on the platform can be routed to CME Clearing or LCH.Clearnet.

"We are pleased to report that BGC has successfully completed mandated pre-trade credit checks, bringing together our multiple means of compliant execution with Traiana in a seamless transaction," says Philip Norton, executive managing director and global head of e-commerce at BCG Partners.

Traiana is owned by interdealer broker Icap.
