- Who is Javelin?
Javelin Capital Markets was founded in 2009 by derivative trading and technology professionals. Javelin created a Swap Execution Facility in response to the changing market structure in derivatives as a result of the 2008 banking crisis. Javelin has delivered an execution model that supports the needs of its customers, dealers and sales forces, while satisfying current regulatory requirements for safe and transparent markets.
Javelin offers low cost, real time trade execution for Interest Rate and Credit Default Swaps. Offering both anonymous Limit Order Book and Request for Quote execution—Javelin combines optimal liquidity with transparency and market depth.
Customers may execute directly or through their designated swap broker on the Javelin platform.
Because Javelin is clearing agnostic, customers have a choice of clearing house for their swaps business. To ensure market integrity by lessening settlement risk, Javelin has pioneered real time acceptance of trades in seconds and soon to be, milliseconds with participating clearing houses.
