International exchanges are increasing their participation in Asia organically, as well as through partnerships and acquisitions. The participation is taking place in various forms: ICE Futures Singapore (tradable) Micro Asia Tech 30 Index futures contracts, SIX’s ADX Digital Asset Exchange partnering with SBI; Cboe’s regional acquisitions and extended trading hours for volatility (VIX) instruments. The participants will discuss:
What / who prompted the need for this product/venue?
Who do these instruments appeal to institutional, retail?
Do any of these instruments trade outside Asia hours?
How will the data be sold/distributed: as part of (existing) global exchange feeds, as independent feeds?
What future initiatives in Asia/Pacific can we expect from international exchanges: acquisitions, organic growth?
