“The other products within ION’s cleared derivatives suite remain unchanged, namely, XTP Core, XTP Clearing, and XTP Match. And there’s the recently launched XTP Spark for banks and brokers, commodity trading firms, and niche clearers who are starting their digitalization journey.”

ION has announced the rebranding of its suite of cleared derivatives offering, a full front-to-back product suite harnessing the power of connected data to provide real-time insights into net positions, margins, risk, analytics, commissions, and more.

XTP is the new brand name of ION’s cleared derivatives suite, announced as part of the firm’s investment in a single platform for further growth and expansion.

The cleared derivatives product offering now includes the JANUS risk management and Clarus CHARM analytics solutions, as the firm expands its capabilities in providing workflow automation technology that simplifies operational complexity.

Below, the list of all products included in ION’s suite of cleared derivatives products now under the flagship XTP brand:

  • GTP, ION’s front office solution, is now XTP Execution;
  • XTP Risk and JANUS Risk Manager have together become XTP Risk JANUS;
  • Clarus CHARM has become XTP Analytics;
  • JANUS Central Limit is now XTP Central Limits; and
