On April 27, 2004, three Hong Kong banks terminated HK$119 billion of Hong Kong dollar interest rate swaps overnight, freeing participants from the capital, credit, operational and legal risks of around HK$3.9 billion of mark-to-market exposure. Since then, TriOptima has been gaining a critical mass in Hong Kong, with its latest termination event in September 2005 attracting nine banks and terminating HK$380 billion notional and HK$6.8 billion mark-to market.
