IBG takes to Eris
October 11, 2017

Eris Exchange, a US-based futures exchange group that offers swap futures as the leading alternative to traditional over-the-counter (OTC) swaps, has announced that online electronic brokerage firm Interactive Brokers Group is now offering its 418,000 client accounts execution and clearing support for Eris Swap Futures. 

The addition of full electronic access for Eris Swap Futures by Interactive Brokers not only contributes to the expansion of their existing global market footprint that spans 120 different markets across 24 countries and 22 currencies, but makes swap risk accessible to a new class of clients, representing another important milestone for Eris.

"Over the past 40 years, Interactive Brokers Group has grown organically by applying innovative technology and meeting investors' needs for seamless, electronic access to global financial markets. This strategy continues today with the addition of Eris Swap Futures," said Steve Sanders, Executive Vice President, Marketing & Product Development at Interactive Brokers. "At the core of our business is Interactive Brokers' on-line electronic brokerage platform, which provides access to a wide range of global asset classes. We are expanding our broad product offerings with the inclusion of Eris Swap Futures."

"Interactive Brokers' decision to offer Eris comes as we see growing demand for swap futures from investors and exposure hedgers that are frustrated by the rising costs and limited access to OTC swap markets," said Geoff Sharp, Managing Director, Head of Sales at Eris Exchange. "With Interactive Brokers now offering Eris Swap Futures, thousands of new users gain access to interest rate swap risk, a market previously beyond their reach."
