Lookalike Swaps & Options

Also known as Plain Vanilla Options or Swaps, these are IFM’s most basic OTC product. Lookalike options offer similar optionality features as their exchange-traded equivalents regarding strike, expiration date, and premium. They are also fungible with exchange-traded products. For certain qualified customers, IFM’s initial and variation margin thresholds can, in some cases, act as financing.

Following are examples of common Lookalikes:

  • Producer Short Swap
  • Producer Lookalike Short Call
  • Producer Lookalike Long Put
  • Producer Lookalike Collar
  • Producer Lookalike 3 way
  • Consumer Long Swap
  • Consumer Lookalike Short Put
  • Consumer Lookalike Long Call
