Introduction of Three-Month SARON® Futures

Regulatory pressure, along with ongoing issues regarding LIBOR, has created the need for alternative risk free reference rates (RFRs). In Switzerland SARON® has been the alternative interest rate benchmark since end of 2017.

To help the market with an orderly transition to the new benchmark, Eurex is launching a Three-Month SARON® Futures contract, the first exchange-traded SARON® Futures globally, on the 29th of October, 2018. SARON® Futures constitute a market-driven alternative that seeks to attract market participants by providing the opportunity to hedge their CHF exposures while benefiting from cross margining opportunities at Eurex Clearing AG.
