Since 2014, cost pressures have continued to mount in the bilateral swap market and voluntary clearing of OTC products has increased. Interest rate swap clearing in G4 currencies has increased 103%, while clearing in the 17 currencies outside of the G4 has soared 372% across the industry.
CME is the global leader in Latin American (LatAm) swap clearing. Since launching MXN TIIE and Brazilian CDI swaps, volume and participants have continued to grow in what is now a deeply liquid cleared swap market. In response to strong customer demand in May 2018 we launched Chilean Cámara Peso (CLP) and Colombian Peso (COP) swap clearing. To enhance our customers capital efficiencies in their LatAm businesses, we offer regular compression cycles for Brazilian, Colombian, and Mexican swaps.
