The Woodlands, TX, November 1, 2023 —AEGIS SEF, LLC (“AEGIS Markets”), today provided multiple updates on its financial counterparty (“Dealer”) participation and 3Q 2023 trading activity.
After a tremendous year of progress ensuring compliance and improving the efficacy of hedging markets, AEGIS SEF will be referred to as AEGIS Markets going forward. Regarding this change, Chris Payne, President of AEGIS Markets stated, “We’re overwhelmed by the support and feedback from the Dealers and End Users who are executing on our swap execution facility. While compliance remains important, our mission has always focused on creating a modern marketplace for hedging transactions. Connecting our name – AEGIS Markets – to this mission is a logical step after a tremendous first year of adoption.”
In the third quarter of 2023, AEGIS Markets achieved new records in both volume and trade activity due to increased Dealer and Commercial End User (collectively “Participants”) presence on the Marketplace. “We’ve executed significant volume in our first year, setting new volume records each quarter. However, the most rewarding feedback is from our Participants in terms of how we’ve done it - transparently, efficiently, and compliantly,” said Payne.
AEGIS Markets now has 23 Dealers and over 350 Commercial End Users executing hedging transactions across 250 available products. Each Participant has signed definitive documentation to enable the execution of hedging transactions on AEGIS Markets.
