SEFs & OTFs

Swap Execution Facilities (SEFs)/Organized Trading Facilities (OTFs)


The Dodd Frank legislation and regulatory reform have led to growth in electronic trading of OTC products in a centrally cleared environment. As a SEF, you will want to be a multi asset facility with the ability to execute underlying exchange traded hedges all from the same platform.  RTS has helped clients with existing front-end GUIs to create complete back-end trade architecture to become a SEF. We can create a proprietary marketplace for trading OTC derivatives with connectivity to exchange clearing houses. We can also provide your end users with a single platform for multi-asset, OTC and exchange traded execution.
