Newedge plans to take its clearing business for over-the-counter interest-rate swaps to Asia, senior executive Ramir Cimafranca says. "We will continue to expand our proven prime-clearing infrastructure and our agency-broker model to service major OTC players in the region," he said. In February, the company cleared an OTC interest-rate swaps trade on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, becoming the first nontraditional swaps dealer to do so.
