CME Group has partnered with BNY Mellon, a global leader in investment management and investment services, to provide investors with important new interest rate hedging tools that leverage BNY Mellon's strengths as a U.S. Tri-Party Repo agent and custodian and CME Group's leadership as a derivatives marketplace.
BNY Mellon's role in the collaboration will be to prepare and provide daily U.S. Tri-Party Repo Indices that reflect overnight interest rates on Tri-Party Repo transactions collateralized by U.S. Treasuries, Agency Mortgage Backed Securities, and U.S. Agency Debt.
CME Group plans to launch* a futures product based on the BNY Mellon Treasury Tri-Party Repo Index that will allow investors to hedge risk on short-term collateralized loans and other nearly risk-free interest rate exposures.
*Pending regulatory review
