FIA statement on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II

8 September 2022

FIA joins the U.K. in mourning the loss of Queen Elizabeth II and has begun discussions with market participants in the cleared derivatives industry about the potential of market closures in observance of her passing. 

"We are deeply saddened by the passing of Queen Elizabeth and extend our condolences to all of FIA's members and friends in the United Kingdom," said FIA's President and CEO Walt Lukken. "The Queen was admired around the world, and leaves a legacy of public service that everyone can admire no matter which country they call home."   

FIA is currently consulting with stakeholders in the cleared derivatives industry to determine what implications, if any, there are for our markets. We will update our members or provide resources with guidance during the mourning period as needed. Please visit for additional market information as it becomes available.
