Spectrum Markets joins German Derivatives Association

abdelaziz Fathi

Pan-European trading venue Spectrum Markets has become a supporting member of the German Derivatives Association (DDV) as it aims to strengthen the association’s ongoing efforts to advance the structured products.

By joining the DDV, Spectrum Markets aligns itself with an organization that represents 95% of the certificates market in Germany. The primary objective of the DDV is to enhance the regulatory environment for structured products both within Germany and across Europe. This applies in particular to voluntary commitments with regards to costs and product transparency for investment certificates.

Furthermore, the association aims to foster a growing interest among private investors in certificates and warrants.

Spectrum Markets said the decision to become a supporting member of the DDV highlights its commitment to contributing to the development of structured products. This collaboration has the potential to facilitate improvements in the industry’s regulatory framework, thereby promoting greater market efficiency and investor confidence.

As Spectrum Markets takes an active role within the DDV, market participants will be keen to observe the collective impact of their joint efforts in shaping the landscape of structured products in Germany and beyond.

“The DDV membership is a significant strategic step forward for us as it is opening up the opportunity to participate in industry committees and working groups on regulatory initiatives and to share expertise developed from our pan-European trading network here” comments Nicky Maan, CEO of Spectrum Markets.

Spectrum has seen a significant increase in trading volumes since its launch, with securitised derivatives traded tripling from around $432 million in the first year of operation.

Earlier this year, Spectrum inked two important partnerships with Societe Generale and Spanish derivatives broker iBroker. The company onboarded the French banking giant as its newest liquidity provider and market maker of newly issued financial instruments.

As an issuer of listed securitised derivatives, Societe Generale enables its extensive network of financial institutions and brokers to offer their retail clients the opportunity to trade a series of daily constant leverage products and vanilla warrant products on Spectrum.

The alliance also increases the available range of instruments for retail investors in Finland, Norway, Sweden and Spain via their brokers or banks.

Spectrum said these partnerships represent a significant milestone for its growth strategy and a new source of trading volume to the venue. The new opportunities are particularly appealing in the context of Spectrum’s single pan-European ISIN, through which investors get access to a deeper liquidity pool.
