The Wholesale Markets Brokers Association (WMBA) is based in London and represents the interests of the inter-dealer brokers who operate in the wholesale financial markets in interest rates, credit, foreign exchange and equity derivatives.[1]

It has a sister association, the London Energy Brokers Association (LEBA) the members of which trade principally in gas, power, oil, carbon emissions certificates as well as some other energy products.[2]

In 2009 WMBA supported the move towards a central counterparty (CCP) as an effective step to improve the settlement of credit default swaps and other OTC products generally.[3]

In July of 2009, the WMBA formed the Wholesale Markets Brokers' Association Americas Inc.


Products and Services


Its members trade in a wide range of OTC products and their derivatives in a product range that covers all Treasury and capital markets, including credit default swaps (CDS).
