CME Group to list USD Eris IRS
May 10, 2018

CME Group and Eris Exchange, a US-based futures exchange group that offers swap futures as the leading alternative to traditional over-the-counter (OTC) swaps, today announced they have entered into an exclusive licensing agreement to list USD Eris Interest Rate Swap futures, which already clear at CME Clearing.

Pending regulatory approval, Eris futures will be listed with and subject to the rules and regulations of CBOT (Chicago Board of Trade), starting in the fourth quarter of 2018, and existing open interest in the contracts will be transferred to CME Group at that time.

The Eris futures will trade alongside the MAC Swap Futures, bringing together the two leading interest rate swap futures on a single exchange venue. Until the migration in late 2018, Eris Swap Futures will remain listed at Eris Exchange and cleared at CME Clearing, where they are subject to margin offsets with CME Group's interest rate futures.
