Stocks in this article: CME

Shahid Ikram, Chief Investment Officer at Aviva Investors said: "Aviva Investors view OTC derivatives as integral to the investment management process, enabling us to better manage our clients' portfolios and to capture investment performance on their behalf. It is key for us to have the necessary infrastructure in place to continue to use OTC derivatives to add value to our clients' portfolios."

Paul Twohey, European Head of OTC Clearing at Credit Suisse stated: "We welcome the roll out of CME Clearing Europe's OTC Clearing Platform, providing market participants with an increased choice of venues at which to clear their OTC positions in line with regulatory requirements."

"We are delighted to be the first to complete a cleared trade for Aviva, one of our key clients, on CME Clearing Europe's platform," said Hester Serafini, global co-head of OTC Clearing at J.P. Morgan. "With the U.S. now already underway with swaps clearing, this is a significant step for the European market and a template as we build towards mandatory clearing under EMIR."

To date, CME Clearing in the U.S. has cleared more than $1.75 trillion in OTC interest rate swap volume, and open interest has grown to more than $1 trillion.  In addition, CME Group began listing and clearing on 13 November in the U.S. Deliverable Interest Rate Swap Futures contracts, listed by and subject to the rules of CME, providing access for U.S. customers to interest rate swap exposure.
