About Tullett Prebon. Tullett Prebon. Tullett Prebon plc is an inter-dealer money broker. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index. History[edit] The company was founded by Derek Tullett in 1971 as a foreign exchange broker trading as Tullett & Riley.[3] During the 1970s and 1980s it opened a number of overseas offices. In 1999 the Company merged with Liberty Brokerage to create Tullett Liberty.[3] In early 2003 the Company was bought by Collins Stewart plc, a financial services company, creating Collins Stewart Tullett plc.[3][4] In October 2004 the company acquired Prebon Yamane, a broking business formed in 1990 following the merger of three leading London-based money broking businesses—Babcock & Brown, Kirkland-Whittaker and Fulton Prebon[3]—and which had adopted that name in acknowledgement of the firm's close business alliance with the Tokyo-based Yamane Group.[3] Operations[edit] The company operates as an intermediary in wholesale financial markets.

Competition[edit] Swap Execution Facility. Swap Execution Facility (SEF) is a regulated platform for swap trading that provides pre-trade information (bids and offers) and an execution mechanism for swap transactions among eligible participants.[1] The regulated trading of certain swaps is a result of requirements in the United States by the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.[2] Note in particular Title VII. Following the CFTC's certification of Javelin SEF LLC's Made Available to Trade Submission (MAT Submission) on January 16th, 2014, certain swaps are now mandatory to trade on Swap Execution Facilities as of February 15th, 2014.[3] The swaps business is very well established worldwide and swaps are routinely traded in quite robust over-the-counter (OTC) markets.

Recent regulatory changes are driving reporting, clearing and settlement functions to much more tightly regulated Swap Execution Facilities. Swap Execution Facility Regulation[edit] Established Entities in the Swaps Trading Business[edit] Swap Execution Facility Trading Volumes: Here are the Real Numbers | Kevin on the Street. There are some really good parts of the SEF rule, and this in my view is one of the best: Core Principle 9 requires a SEF to make public timely information on price, trading volume, and other trading data on swaps to the extent prescribed by the Commission.

The result? SEFs posting daily volumes on their websites for all the world to see. My qualitative conversations with market participants and SEFs showed that liquidity was down slightly in IRS and CDS, with some business going back to the phone or overseas. But by and large day 1 was in fact boring. Bloomberg ($1.5 billion IRS, $4.5 billion CDS)GFI ($3.72 billion CDX and other swaps)ICAP (299 trades, 96 different products in 9 different currencies, including IRS ($21 billion in USD), CDS and NDF)Javelin (100m IRS)Tradeweb TW/DW ($2.4 billion IRS, $0.6 billion CDS)If I’ve missed volume elsewhere please let me know.

While its great to finally see some real SEF trading, we’re a long way from picking winners and losers. CFTC Approves Tullett Prebon's Swap Execution Facility.
