About the AEGIS SEF 

Regulatory Disclaimer
AEGIS SEF, LLC (“AEGIS”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of AEGIS Hedging Solutions, LLC, is registered as a Swap Execution Facility (“SEF”) under the authority of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) pursuant to Section 5h (7 U.S.C. 5h) of the Commodity Exchange Act (“CEA”) and Part 37 (17 C.F.R. Part 37) of the CFTC Regulations thereunder.

Over-The-Counter (OTC) derivatives are not suitable for all investors and involve the risk of loss. All SEF Contracts available to be traded on the AEGIS-SEF Platform are uncleared bilateral swaps that are “permitted transactions” as defined in Section 37.9(c)(1) of the CFTC’s Regulations (17 C.F.R. 37.9(c)(1)).

All matters pertaining to the use of the Order Book or the Request for Quotes (RFQ) functionality of the AEGIS-SEF Platform to solicit bids/offers for, and execute, uncleared bilateral swaps are expressly subject to the rules set forth in the AEGIS-SEF Rulebook. Current rules should be consulted in all cases including matters relevant to SEF Contract specifications. AEGIS reserves the right to make changes and corrections to such rules at any time and without notice.
