According to Hirander Misra, CEO of GMEX Group, in a recent statement on the membership, “Joining the SFOA is part of our strategy to engage with a wider internationally diverse audience with emphasis on both developed and emerging derivatives markets aligning to GMEX Group’s core focus areas.
We look forward to highlighting the benefits of GMEX Exchange, with its pioneering interest rate swap constant maturity futures products (IRS CMF), to a global audience as well as helping to promote the partnership driven approach of GMEX Technologies when collaborating with emerging markets exchanges across the world on business and technology initiatives to drive their growth.”
