“By introducing this new round, we are providing the buy side with greater choice when it comes to accessing safe and transparent pools of peer liquidity.”
FX HedgePool has launched a new monthly, mid-month, settlement date-based matching cycle that will anchor on the third Wednesday of each month.
Pegging to the third Wednesday of each month creates a more frequent cycle that aligns with the familiar quarterly IMM (International Money Market) due dates.
In March 2021, FX HedgePool added a quarterly cycle consistent with standard IMM dates to its matching engine to address growing interest in passive hedgers rolling over their positions on a quarterly cycle.
The new matching cycle will provide a standardized mid-month settlement date, making it easier for the buy side to provide liquidity to each other, helping to mitigate the risk of tracking error, while eliminating unnecessary transaction costs. impact on the market in offsetting positions between peers.
Jay Moore, CEO and co-founder of FX HedgePool, said: “Even though an abundance of passive hedging occurs one day at the end of the month, we have seen significant interest in a mid-month rolling cycle. By introducing this new round, we are providing the buy side with greater choice when it comes to accessing safe and transparent pools of peer liquidity.
