Company Background

GFO-X is building a UK based, cash-settled, derivatives exchange only for approved participants, initially to list Bitcoin Futures and Options.

GFO-X has identified an unmet need from large institutional participants for a highly regulated, institutional-grade, derivatives exchange for digital assets outside of the United States.


By plugging into the traditional financial ecosystem GFO-X has solved for the challenging operational issues currently holding back the institutional participation in the growth of digital assets.


The management team have decades of experience in financial markets, complex derivatives, and building and operating a world class exchange.

Using world-class technology, compliance and operations, the zero-legacy tier 1 regulated GFO-X will compete with only a handful of institutional venues for digital asset derivatives trading.

GFO-X is currently neither authorised nor regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
At present, GFO-X is not permitted to carry out any regulated activities, neither carry out any financial advertisement promotions. Upon GFO-X obtaining a UK regulatory licence, GFO-X will only deal with Professional and Eligible Counterparties. 

“Large scale institutional adoption of digital assets is inevitable. However, institutions need the comfort of traditional market infrastructure to fully participate. GFO-X addresses that need”
