Company Background

GFO-X is building a UK based derivatives exchange only for approved participants, initially to list Futures and Options.

GFO-X has identified an unmet need from large institutional participants for a highly regulated, institutional-grade, derivatives exchange outside of the United States.


The management team have decades of experience in financial markets, complex derivatives, and building and operating a world class exchange.

Using world-class technology, compliance and operations, the zero-legacy tier 1 regulated GFO-X will compete with only a handful of institutional venues for derivatives trading.

GFO-X is currently neither authorised nor regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
At present, GFO-X is not permitted to carry out any regulated activities, neither carry out any financial advertisement promotions. Upon GFO-X obtaining a UK regulatory licence, GFO-X will only deal with Professional and Eligible Counterparties. 

“Institutions need the comfort of traditional market infrastructure. GFO-X addresses that need”
