London, New York - 18 April 2016 – TriOptima, a leading provider of OTC derivatives post-trade infrastructure, announces that Nasdaq members completed the first successful compression cycle for cleared Swedish Krona (SEK) interest rate swaps. Over 40% of the cleared outstanding SEK swap inventory was eliminated in this first collaboration between Nasdaq and TriOptima.

“I’m very pleased to offer our members this service in collaboration with TriOptima”, said Johan Rudén, Senior Vice President and Head of Nordic Fixed Income at Nasdaq, “With the new capital requirements under Basel III, banks and clearing brokers need to look for additional ways to reduce exposures as well as notional outstanding on their balance sheets.”

“TriOptima’s collaboration with Nasdaq enables their clearing members to streamline their portfolios and increase their capital efficiencies while contributing to an overall reduction in systemic risk” said Peter Weibel, CEO of triReduce.
