Products and Services[edit]

Actuarials offers trading in Clippers, a defined risk futures like OTC contract. According to Actuarials, "the Clipper is a "standard manufacture" derivative that structurally caps a gain or loss from an underlying asset to a "clip limit" amount. Whether the trader initiates the short or long side, the trade is automatically filled on a dark-pool exchange. A range of intraday -- at every quarter-hour and hour - overnight, weekly, and monthly expirations make Clippers appropriate for almost every trading style or strategy."[1]

AE OTC Services, LLC, provides custodial trade escrow services solely for institutions and professional traders who are eligible contract participants, lawfully trading OTC derivatives referencing securities, currencies, and other excluded commodities, under the express provisions 1a(12), 1a(13), 1a(31), 2(d)(2), and 2(e) of the Commodities Exchange Act (CEA), as amended, and under 3(a)(5)(55)(A) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.[2]
