About CME Group’s SEF
CME Group has received temporary registration as a swap execution facility (SEF) in addition to our current exchanges and trading platforms. Our SEF will be accessible via CME Direct, an easily accessible platform providing access to both CME Group futures and OTC markets. Our offering will provide the greatest operational flexibility possible to meet our customers needs. We will initially launch with Commodities and we are currently evaluating additional asset classes based on customer demand.
