WMBA member firms are global Wholesale Market Brokers providing, inter-alia, OTC intermediation services in the cash and derivative Rate, Credit, Foreign Exchange, Equity and Commodity marketplaces. Our members collectively have a physical presence in all major financial capitals globally as well as many secondary financial centres and provide intermediation services to, among others, customers in all 27 EU member states. Furthermore, WMBA members firms arrange the vast majority of OTC derivative transactions executed daily around the world.

WMBA member firms are limited activity firms that act as non risk-taking intermediaries with a principal client base made up of global banks, primary dealers, leading regional banks, government agencies, asset managers, oil companies and energy generators/utilities. Our primary function is to source, develop, manage and publicise liquidity pools for our customers to assist them in their global risk mitigation processes.

The WMBA and its member firms are in agreement with, and supportive of, the introduction of the OTF category under MiFIR as this proposed regime closely describes the current business model of WMBA members which has been successfully operational across global markets for over 50 years.
