The Financial and Energy Exchange Group (FEX Group) is an Australian market structure design and operations company established in 2006. Its business aim is to build and operate regulated and globally competitive licensed marketplaces for derivative products, with a focus on commodity, energy and environmental asset classes.

FEX markets are regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) as well as through the Reserve Bank of Australia's oversight of financial system stability. FEX Global’s markets will be cleared by CME Clearing (subject to complete regulatory approval).[1] On 18 July 2018, the CFTC certified rule amendments for CME to clear for the FEX Exchange.

FEX uses NasdaqOMX technology for its futures market trading engine and a proprietary trading technology for its Mercari swaps execution facility.

Mercari was established in 2005 and since January 2011 has been licensed to offer OTC markets in commodity, energy, interest rate, foreign currency and environmental product. Mercari uses the Mercari eSEF technology to operate the market place and is supervised by ASIC. Further information can be found at
