In all, CME Group’s ADV transacted outside of North America reached 5.2 million contracts during the third quarter of 2019, up 41% over the same period in 2018. This was driven by 55% growth in Interest Rate products, a 78% increase in Equity products and 33% growth in Metals.

We continue to see trading volume growth out of Asia Pacific as market participants continue to look towards CME Group to manage their risks,” said Christopher Fix, Managing Director and Head of Asia Pacific, CME Group. “We had a record quarter for Asia Pacific ADV in second-quarter 2019, and to follow that up so quickly with another record-breaking quarter is a signal that clients recognize that CME Group fulfils their needs for risk management on a robust, regulated marketplace with round-the-clock liquidity.

Globally, CME Group reached ADV of 20.2 million contracts during the third quarter of 2019, up 30% from third-quarter 2018.
