B3 stands out among the world’s top 5 exchanges

Brazilian exchange takes 2nd place in the ranking of exchanges with the highest volume of derivatives contracts traded in 1H21


B3 stood out among the world’s top five exchanges in total volume of derivatives contracts traded in the ranking published in the first quarter of 2021 by the Futures Industry Association (FIA), an entity that brings together the world's major exchanges. B3 was ahead of leading exchanges such as Nasdaq (New York Stock Exchange), CME Group (Chicago Stock Exchange) and Intercontinental Exchange, owner of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The National Stock Exchange of India, the country's leading exchange, took first place in the ranking.

FIA is one of the most respected advocacy and education organizations in the derivatives market. B3's outstanding position in the ranking published by FIA reflects the dynamic growth of derivatives volumes traded in recent years.


Good positioning for all products

B3 also appears among the world’s five highest ranked exchanges for the main products traded globally in 1Q21. The DI1 Futures Contract, whose underlying asset is the daily average rate of interbank deposits (DI), ranked first place in the list of futures contracts ahead of CME and CBot, one of the world’s oldest futures and options exchanges. B3 also ranked fifth place on the same list with Options on DI.

The Ibovespa Mini Futures, which allows individual investors and small companies to enter the listed derivatives market by offering contracts with a minimum price and lot size suited to their profiles, also ranked high among the top five stock index futures and options contracts traded globally in 1Q21.

The Mini U.S. Dollar Futures Contract (WDO) was the second most traded currency derivatives contract in the world in 1Q21.
