Connamara Technologies Granted Membership to FIA

AUSTIN, TEXAS, Feb 16, 2024

Connamara Technologies, the company behind EP3, the asset agnostic exchange platform, announces that it has been approved for membership to the Futures Industry Association (FIA, Inc)

FIA is the leading global trade organization for futures, options, and centrally cleared derivative markets. With offices in Brussels, London, Singapore, and Washington, D.C., its mission is to support open, transparent, and competitive markets, protect and enhance the financial system’s integrity, and promote high standards of professional conduct. Since 1955, FIA has partnered with global regulators, promoted industry-led best practices, supported efficiency and innovation, and ensured the safety and soundness of global cleared derivatives markets now and in the future. 

Connamara Technologies can leverage this newly granted membership to connect with market participants, regulators, and industry leaders. With FIA’s high-level advocacy support, the Technologies team can access exclusive member-only data visualizations, including levels of trading activity on global futures exchanges, risk exposures at CCPs, the amount of customer funds held by U.S. clearing firms, and SEF volumes. FIA also maintains a central repository of exchange-provided risk controls and practices in global cleared derivatives markets for the use of FIA members.

Connamara Technologies will celebrate our membership acceptance by sponsoring the Pickleball Clinic at FIA Boca, the annual International Futures Industry Conference, on Mar 10, 2024.

“It’s an honor for our young company to be granted membership in FIA,” remarked Connamara Technologies co-founder and CEO Jim Downs. “The FIA and its prestigious membership ranks represent the leading thinkers driving future thinking in global derivative markets. Connamara Tech is pleased to be among this exclusive list of innovators.”
