Company Description
ASX Group (ASX) is an umbrella brand developed to reflect the role of ASX Limited as the holding company of a group with a diverse range of market service activities linked by a common commitment to provide the infrastructure Australia needs to create a globally competitive capital market and a vibrant, robust economy. ASX Group was created by the merger of the Australian Stock Exchange and the Sydney Futures Exchange in July 2006 and is today one of the world’s top-10 listed exchange groups measured by market capitalisation. ASX is a multi-asset class, vertically-integrated exchange group whose activities span primary and secondary market services, including the raising, allocation and hedging of capital flows, trading and price discovery (Australian Securities Exchange); central counterparty risk transfer (via subsidiaries of ASX Clearing Corporation); and securities settlement for both the equities and fixed income markets (via subsidiaries of ASX Settlement Corporation). ASX functions as a market operator, clearing house and payments system facilitator. It also oversees compliance with its operating rules, promotes standards of corporate governance among Australia’s listed companies and helps to educate retail investors. The domestic and international customer base of ASX is diverse. It includes issuers (such as corporations and trusts) of a variety of listed securities and financial products; investment and trading banks; fund managers; hedge funds; commodity trading advisers; brokers and proprietary traders; market data vendors; and retail investors. In addition to its role as a market operator, ASX relies on a range of subsidiary brands to monitor and enforce compliance with its operating rules. These subsidiaries are: Australian Securities Exchange - handles ASX’s primary, secondary and derivative market services. It encompasses ASX (formerly Australian Stock Exchange) and ASX 24 (formerly Sydney Futures Exchange) ASX Clearing Corporation - is the brand under which ASX’s clearing services are promoted. It encompasses ASX Clear (formerly the Australian Clearing House) and ASX Clear (Futures) (formerly SFE Clearing Corporation) ASX Settlement Corporation - is the brand under which ASX Group’s settlement services are promoted. It encompasses ASX Settlement (formerly ASX Settlement and Transfer Corporation) and Austraclear ASX Compliance - is the brand under which services are provided to the ASX Group for the ongoing monitoring and enforcement of compliance with the ASX operating rules. This entity replaces ASX Markets Supervision The oversight work performed by ASX's subsidiaries ensures that it provides fair and reliable systems, processes and services that instill confidence in the markets that depend on its infrastructure. Confidence in the operations of ASX is reinforced by the market supervision and regulatory role undertaken by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) across all trading venues and clearing and settlement facilities, as well as through the Reserve Bank of Australia's oversight of financial system stability. ASIC also supervises ASX’s own compliance as a listed public company.
