Equities overview

The Tradition SEF BrokerSuite Equities platform provides functionality for facilitating SEF execution of pre-arranged transactions in a wide variety of broad-based equity index swaps as defined by the CFTC. Such transactions may be introduced by Participants and/or Introducing Brokers subject to the SEF’s pre-arranged trade rules. A pre-arranged transaction is submitted to Tradition SEF via BrokerSuite Equity trade entry portal, which inputs the trade into the SEF deal capture system, for confirmation and transmission to a swap data repository. Alternatively, equity index trades may be executed through communications with our team of professional SEF execution specialists.

TraditionSEF Participants and Customers can execute products across various regions including, but not limited to: North American, Latin American, Asian and European equity indexes, index variance swaps and index total return swaps.
