MYR Quarterly Swap Rates on Reuters page TRADNDIRS at 11am Kuala Lumpur time

With the support of local market participants, Tradition is the first broker to include MYR rates for reference in the ISDA® definitions document, as well as providing new products and fixing times forCNY and TRY OTC derivative products.

Simon Crees, Director of Business Development, Tradition said:
“Through our ongoing work with ISDA®, we are pleased to have achieved recognition for these key currency pages. We work hard to foster our existing relationships with clients, regulators and key market participants and this has enabled us to continue to expand the availability of reference pricing across products and currencies. We believe this demonstrates Tradition’s on-going leadership in benchmark interest rate swaps.”
