StoneX Markets LLC, a provider of execution , post-trade settlement, clearing and custody services across asset classes and markets worldwide, announced on Tuesday that it successfully executed and settled its first cash-settled BTC/USD swap.

According to the press release, StoneX’s institutional FX client, Liquidity Solutions Global, the London-based subsidiary of DriveWealth Holdings and a liquidity provider to multiple cryptocurrency exchanges, was the counterparty to the trade.

Earlier this month, the firm’s institutional FX division began offering USD cash-settled crypto swaps to institutional FX clients. The new offering complements the company’s traditional institutional FX products, including more than 40 currency trading pairs spanning major and emerging market currencies, forwards, non-deliverable forwards and options.

“As with any other asset class, investors need to connect to digital assets markets through a trusted partner who can secure best execution and meet their compliance and custody needs. Cash-settled swaps allow our clients to access the market movement of underlying digital assets without taking physical custody. As a result, many regulated institutions are looking to the swaps market as a cost-effective way to gain access to crypto price exposure without the regulatory burden, cost and additional risks traditionally associated with spot crypto ownership,” Eric Donovan, the Global Head of Institutional FX, commented.
