Rates, Credit and Cross-Assets Derivatives
From highly liquid products to tailor-made products
The product line offers a range of derivatives focused on three main objectives:
- Flow and hedging products (swaps, cross currency, inflation-linked, cap, floor, swaptions, etc.) across the full range of G10 and emerging country currencies guarantee cross-border access to our customers as well as 24/5 service.
- An investment and asset/liability management product offer (structured interest rate products, credit-linked notes, cross assets, etc.) primarily intended for financial institution clients (banks, wealth management institutions, insurance and asset managers). These products can be customised according to appetite for risk exposure (whether capital protected or not) and the asset classes of interest.
