Volumes and Market Share
For major currencies and regions, vanilla swaps referencing IBORs and OIS Swaps referencing RFRs, using single-sided gross notional volume over a period; either a month, quarter or year.
USD Swaps (Libor)
- The trend we would expect as USD Libor comes to an end in June 2023
- 2023Q1 with just $7.35 trillion compared to $25.1 trillion in 2022Q1
- And a chunk of this is $7 trillion islikely to be SPS (single-period swaps) used instead of FRAs for legacy portfolio rate reset management
- LCH SwapClear with $6.7 trillion in 2023Q1
- CME OTC with $616 billion in 2023Q1, with what looks like >$200 billion compression run volume on 24-March, which we have not yet adjusted for (as we usually do)
USD OIS (All)
Referencing Fed Funds and SOFR.
- 2023Q1 with $66.8 trillion compared to $53 trillion in 2022Q1
- LCH SwapClear with $65.6 trillion in 2023Q1 and $52 trillion in 2022Q1
- CME OTC with $1.15 trillion in 2023Q1 and $1.1 trillion in 2022Q1
- 2023Q1 Share is LCH 98.3% and CME 1.7%, compared to 97.9% v 2.1% in 2022Q1
USD Swaps (SOFR)
Next isolating Swaps that reference SOFR, either OIS or Basis, volumes by month.
- Mar 2023 with $11.5 trillion is the highest ever month
- (Prior highs were Feb 2023, Sep 2022 and Mar 2022)
- 2023Q1 with $27.5 trillion, is up from $19.7 trillion in the prior quarter
- Strong increasing volume trends in SOFR volumes
- SOFR volume is 42% of the total OIS volume in the latest quarter, implying a big quarter for Fedfund Swap as in 2022Q3 the same ratio was 56%
- 2023Q1 Share is LCH 95.6% and CME 4.4%, the same share as in 2022Q1
