About Us

TeraExchange offers market participants an anonymous central limit order book (CLOB) for execution of a wide range of clearable swaps, as well as request-for-quote (RFQ), request-for-market (RFM) and indications of interest (IOI). Clearable swaps that can be traded on TeraExchange include interest rate swaps, FX cash-settled and non-deliverable forwards.

The company plays an important role by increasing the certainty of clearing, helping participants meet the regulatory goals of increasing transparency, accountability and oversight in the derivatives markets.

TeraExchange has an extensive range of approved derivative instruments for clearing by connected clearing houses, including CME and LCH.Clearnet.

In addition, TeraExchange offers two complementary trading tools for market participants. TeraDirect is a sophisticated front-end execution management system that displays all information and functionality needed to trade on TeraExchange. TeraCheck is a proprietary pre-trade credit risk management engine that allows market participants and their clearing members to enter and maintain appropriate risk controls and promotes the firmness of orders and finality of trade execution. TeraCheck integrates seamlessly with all in-house and external credit hub systems.

Participants wishing to design their own execution solutions to trade on TeraExchange may connect via FIX.
