Citi clears interest rate swap trades for clients on Chicago Mercantile Exchange
Citi has cleared its first client trades through the Chicago Mercantile Exchange on the CME’s newly launched interest rate swap clearing platform.
In addition to CME, Citi currently clears interest rate swap trades for clients through LCH.Clearnet’s Swapclear service.
Andrew Morton, global head of G10 interest rate trading at Citi, says: “Citi is pleased to have cleared some of the first interest rate swaps for its clients through the CME platform. As a global institution, we support international regulatory initiatives mandating central clearing and believe the central clearing of derivatives will be a core business focus of our franchise going forward.”
