CME Stands To Benefit From Rising Interest Rates as Volatility Returns to Its Markets

Michael Miller Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Michael Miller |

After two years of disappointing revenue growth, CME Group has enjoyed far more favorable market conditions in 2022 and early 2023 as volatility across multiple asset classes drives increased trading volume. In recent years, the most significant headwind for the company has been the impact that low short-term interest rates had on its interest rate complex, which is its largest source of revenue. When interest rates are expected to stay low there is less need for interest rate hedging and less incentive for speculation, creating a drag on CME's trading volume. With interest rates now well above the 0% rate we saw during much of the past decade, the drag has been removed, benefiting the company's growth.

Business Description

Based in Chicago, CME Group operates exchanges giving investors, suppliers, and businesses the ability to trade futures and derivatives based on interest rates, equity indexes, foreign currencies, energy, metals, and commodities. The CME was founded in 1898 and in 2002 completed its initial public offering. Since then, CME Group has consolidated parts of the industry by merging with crosstown rival, CBOT Holdings in 2007 before acquiring Nymex Holdings in 2008 and NEX in 2018. In addition, the company has a 27% stake in S&P Dow Jones Indices, making the Chicago Mercantile Exchange the exclusive venue to trade and clear S&P futures contracts. Through CME’s acquisition of NEX in 2018 it has also expanded into cash foreign exchange, fixed income trading, and collateral optimization.
