MexDer, the derivatives exchange of Mexico, celebrated the launch of its market for financial options yesterday.The derivatives exchange, a subsidiary of the Mexican Stock Exchange, has until now been a futures-only market. It will be supported by infrastructure provided by Asigna, the clearing and settlement arm for the exchange-traded derivatives market managed by Mexican bank Bancomer.
In addition, Mercado Espanol de Futuros y Opciones Financieros (Meff), the Spanish futures and options market, has provided MexDer with its trading platform S/Mart. Meff chief executive Josep Basanez said it will also assist the Mexican exchange in development of new products.

The derivatives exchange was committed to developing a transparent and efficient options market, he added.
