Revved Up: CME Europe’s Knottenbelt Says Currencies Just The Beginning

CME Europe launched in March with an eye on currencies. William Knottenbelt, head of European business operations for CME Group and the CEO of CME Europe, says that the exchange has a core group of seven clearing members with more on the way and its currency products are positioned well for the market. And that, he says, is just the beginning for the European exchange.

“We’re starting now to see the volume beginning to come into the market,” Knottenbelt told JLN at the IDX conference in London. “As we get more and more clearing members and execution members coming on board, we’re getting a good flow of business and we just see that building.”
