Alternative derivative exchange

About us

Where Technology Meets Innovation in Institutional Trading.

ADE is a fully regulated derivatives exchange overseen by the Securities Commission of Bahamas. Our mission is to provide our clients with institutional-grade technology, infrastructure and resources, ensuring they can access cutting-edge tools to support their trading strategies.

We take the security of our clients' assets very seriously, which is why we rely on trusted third-party custody solutions. Our exchange is powered by a matching engine that can process over 1 million orders per second, ensuring our clients have lightning-fast execution times. In addition, we offer a variety of APIs, including FIX, JSON, mini FIX, and Binary APIs, which allow clients to code their customized strategies and solutions.

At ADE, we recognize the importance of real-time risk management, which is why we've implemented dynamic initial margin and dynamic price limits to help protect our client's investments. We're also excited to offer alternative and unique products such as Hash rate futures, Carbon and freight, providing clients with diversified trading opportunities.

Our management team is comprised of industry experts from the buy-side, sell-side, and some of the largest Financial Infrastructure providers in the world, providing clients with unparalleled insight and expertise. As a subsidiary of a larger group based out of the Isle of Man, ADE is well-positioned to deliver on our mission of providing institutional-grade technology and resources to our clients.

ADE is an institutional venue with a traditional clearing member structure. We rely on a group-owned and separately regulated CCP that uses blockchain and runtime asset tokenization to facilitate the settlement of all assets. At ADE, we're committed to delivering on our promise of providing our clients with a secure, reliable, and cutting-edge trading environment.
