Daily Settlement Price Quotation
ICE Futures Europe Eris Standard GBP Interest Rate Futures are priced on a basis of 100, similar to market practice for bonds and other futures contracts

The Daily Settlement Price for each Contract is defined as:
St = 100 + At + Bt - Ct
St = Settlement price at time t
At = Net Present Value (“NPV”) of the future cash flows at time t, based on OIS discounting
Bt = Value of historical fixed and floating amounts from the first trade date
Ct = Price Alignment Interest (PAI††)

IFEU calculates Daily Settlement Price to 4 decimals of precision (e.g. 100.1234)

PAI†† is a cumulative value calculated daily by applying the Sterling OverNight Index Average (SONIA) to the Contract’s NPV, using the day count convention specified above for the Floating Price Leg. PAI†† will start accruing on the first trade date
Final Settlement
Sfinal = 100 + Bfinal – Cfinal
Sfinal = Settlement price on the Maturity Date
Bfinal = Historical fixed and floating amounts starting from the first trade date through the Maturity Date
Cfinal = PAI††, on the Maturity Date

IFEU calculates Final Settlement Price to 4 decimals of precision (e.g. 100.1234)
Quotation
Net Present Value (“NPV”) per Contract will be used for trade execution

NPV is expressed in per contract terms for the Buyer (Pay Fixed). Each Future negotiated in NPV terms has an implicit Futures-Style Price of:

Trade Price = 100 + Anegotiated +Bt – Ct

Where Anegotiated is the NPV per Contract agreed upon between the counterparties (divided by 1,000 to normalise units to 100 face amounts), Bt is the value of the historical fixed and floating amounts, and Ct is the PAI†† at time t

The B and C components are calculated once daily and applied by IFEU, and are not subject to negotiation by the counterparties

The NPV per Contract can be negotiated in the following increments/tick sizes:
£1 for Contracts where the lesser of Remaining Tenor/Underlying Tenor is less than 2 years
£2 for Contracts where the lesser of Remaining Tenor/Underlying Tenor is greater than or equal to 2 years and less than 4 years
£5 for Contracts where the lesser of Remaining Tenor/Underlying Tenor is greater than or equal to 4 years and less than 7 years
£10 for Contracts where the lesser of Remaining Tenor/Underlying Tenor is greater than or equal to 7 years and less than 20 years
£20 for Contracts where the lesser of Remaining Tenor/Underlying Tenor is greater than or equal to 20 years
Block Trade Minimum
250 lots for Contracts with Remaining Tenor up to and including 12 years
