TFX To Launch Six-month Euroyen LIBOR Futures

Share This

Goals of the Product Launch
 (1) Hedging tool for Yen Interest Rate Swap Transactions
  Yen Swaps normally use the 6 month LIBOR benchmark and swap traders are looking for a hedging tool closely aligned with the Yen Interest Rate Swap market. Therefore TFX’s new LIBOR futures will respond to the needs of TFX market participants.

 (2) Improved Convenience for Investors
Yen LIBOR based trading such as yen denominated FRAs (Forward Rate Agreements) and others are often traded in the OTC market. However, this trading features considerable operational burden and counterparty risk.

TFX’s new LIBOR futures will reduce operational burden and have no counterparty risk.

The launch is planned for the first quarter of 2012.
