Financial Market Infrastructures (FMIs) in Australia generally operate reliably, and the competitive landscape has seen new entrants and competitors emerge. The Reserve Bank Information and Transfer System (RITS), operated by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), is the only domestic systemically important interbank payment system. In addition, the domestically incorporated ASX Limited (ASX) group operates an integrated infrastructure including trading platforms, two central counterparties (CCPs), and two securities settlement systems (SSSs). Since 2011, the ASX has faced competition from foreign infrastructures in some markets, including Chi-X Australia Pty Ltd (Chi-X) for cash equities trading and the LCH Limited (LCH Ltd) and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) for some over the counter (OTC) derivatives clearing.
