Coming soon: One destination for Futures & Options intelligence

Enhancing the ETD data services with news, insights and events.

Starting on Tuesday 21st November 2023, two leading brands - ETD and Futures & Options World (FOW) - are combining into one: FOW. By unifying our brands this way, we will be supplementing ETD’s data offerings with industry news, insights and events.

This new strategy allows us to solidify all ETD and FOW offerings under a single, well-established brand. The result is, simply, a more comprehensive and compelling solution for our clients.

The new FOW will be the go-to provider of critical information for today’s futures and options community, helping our clients stay a step ahead of the markets.

The next steps

We will be in touch with ETD clients to let them know how the company name change will be reflected in their data access, and how they can access the news and insights content. In 2024, we will be launching a new FOW website, which will serve as an all-in-one source for accessing futures and options data, news, insights and events.

We are excited about the new FOW, and we think you will be as well. Should you have questions or require support, please don’t hesitate to contact

    The global Futures and Options market continues to grow exponentially, year on year, in terms of the absolute number and volumes of F&O instruments issued and traded, and especially the explosive growth in trading activity in newer markets. In the APAC region, for example, futures and options (and other derivatives) trading is gaining huge momentum and represents an increasingly large share of the ‘global derivatives wallet’. It is estimated that this region’s trading volumes doubled in 2023, with particularly significant activity in India and China. In India alone, activity on major exchanges including the National Stock Exchange leapt around 80% in equity-related derivative transactions (and around 30% for energy, agriculture and precious metals).

    Data normalisation - standardising the presentation of data to ensure it is consistent across required fields and records - is an essential component of effective financial data management, enabling reference data in particular to be recognised, interrogated and incorporated into required data workflows much more easily, and minimising the risk of reconciliation and compliance ‘fails’.
