Margin savings generated by replacing OTC Swaps with Eris Swap Futures.

Chicago and London - Eris Exchange will offer analytical tools powered by Cassini Systems that show end-users how to generate initial margin savings by replacing OTC Swaps with Eris Swap Futures, while retaining the risk exposure of the portfolio.

The Eris-sponsored access to the Cassini offering will allow clients to identify portfolios of Eris Swap Futures that can lower initial margins in excess of 50%. End users submit a sample portfolio of OTC IRS, or a delta ladder, and the analytics powered by Cassini generate a report detailing the replacement portfolio of margin efficient Eris positions. This service is being offered free of charge.
