BRINGING STABILITY TO THE TRADING LIFECYCLE

The huge growth in "off-exchange" trading, or over-the-counter (OTC) transactions and derivatives, conducted via traditional stock exchanges, has given rise to the need for new forms of centralised risk management. Market Infrastructure is the conduit by which trust, stability and robustness can be achieved in the trading ecosystem.
