Beginning this Fall, trade commodity swaps and options electronically on AEGIS SEF to manage commercial price risks in a transparent, efficient, and compliant marketplace. 

 


Overview

Why was AEGIS SEF formed?

AEGIS Hedging Solutions (“AEGIS”) works with hundreds of companies to research potential price movements in commodity and rate markets, develop tailored hedging strategies to protect cash flow from related volatility, and manage all hedge positions through settlement.

AEGIS SEF LLC, a subsidiary of AEGIS Hedging Solutions, will facilitate the negotiation and execution of bilateral swap contracts for market participants. The AEGIS SEF, pending regulatory approval, will include (i) a request-for-quote (RFQ) function to allow negotiations between clients and financial counterparties and (ii) a central limit order book (CLOB). Trading on the AEGIS SEF will be used to execute Permitted Transactions. The AEGIS SEF is headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas. 

AEGIS subsequently submitted its application with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) to become a Swap Execution Facility (“SEF”) under the CFTC's rules issued pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act on February 3, 2021, and is currently under review.

Commodity interest trading involves risk and, therefore, is not appropriate for all persons; failure to manage commercial risk by engaging in some form of hedging also involves risk. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. There is no guarantee that hedge program objectives will be achieved. Neither this trading advisor nor any of its trading principals offer a trading program to clients, nor do they propose guiding or directing a commodity interest account for any client based on any such trading program. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission does not pass upon the adequacy or accuracy of this Advisor’s disclosure and has not reviewed or approved the contents of this webpage.
