Underwrite. Execute. Settle.


Underwriting and listing of futures contracts is enabled for Jupiter proprietary futures contracts.  Contracts are defined with clear terms for market assessment and valuation.

Executing trades on the national securities exchange through a national best bid (NBB) approach matches buy/sell orders to enable fair and transparent access to liquid markets.  Traders view bid/ask quotes and enter orders with controls for order type, price limits, and order duration.

Settling trades based on the contract rules is supported through a regulated clearinghouse to manage compliance and process independence.  Physical settlement of credits is available by request.

Traders capitalize from fair and transparent investment opportunities regulated by the U.S. CFTC and operated with a national securities exchange.

Define. Commit. Monitor.


Defining data attributes for a futures contract requires complex analysis of carbon unit equivalency and market conditions.  Terms and attribute for financial products are defined in the Jupiter Environmental Data Taxonomy.

Committing to net-zero sustainability initiatives with Jupiter provides both visibility to consumer objectives, including types of credits, and the status of credit retirements to fulfill commitments.

Monitoring carbon projects and units is required for initial certification and re-verification processes.  Transparency is available through Jupiter Environment Project and Unit Registries.

Our team unlocks the complexity of listing carbon units and provides visibility to the maintenance and certification lifecycle.
