A ‘regulation first’ approach has already enabled GFO-X to achieve trust and credibility with the largest institutions. GFO-X’s goal is to bring partners along the journey of innovation, step by step, as digital assets deliver more sophisticated institutional grade products.

M&G Portfolio Manager, Jeremy Punnett, says: “The lack of regulated trading venues is materially hampering the growth of the crypto derivatives trading market. The UK has the potential to become a global hub for crypto asset technology and investment, making London an excellent destination for GFO-X’s new global trading venue. This investment enables GFO-X to scale its operations as the business is set to benefit from investors shifting their trading from unregulated to regulated venues.”

Arnab Sen, CEO of GFO-X, says, “Evolving regulation will bring digital assets into mainstream finance. This transition demands traditional market structures to solve the multiple risks currently associated with the digital asset market. However, building a regulated financial market ecosystem is complex, time-consuming and expensive, and the pitfalls of taking shortcuts are now clear for all to see. The long-term viability of digital assets and the digitisation of real tangible assets requires careful collaboration between traditional market participants and modern innovators. Having a patient long term capital partner such as M&G is crucial as we build the next generation of global financial market infrastructure for digital assets.”

Corentine Poilvet-Clédière, CEO, LCH SA says, “LCH SA is excited to be working with GFO-X, together with the industry, to provide a regulated marketplace for Bitcoin index futures and options as we look to expand our services to become a truly international clearing house. We look forward to the launch of the service, ensuring the safe growth and development of this asset class as demand from institutional market participants grows.”
