Brazilian equities and derivatives exchange BM&FBOVESPA is Latin America's leading exchange and the second largest in the western hemisphere, surpassing NYSE Euronext and Nasdaq OMX. It offers products from equities to spot commodities to interest-rate futures contracts.
BM&FBovespa posted volume of over 1.35 billion derivatives contracts traded in 2015, according to the Futures Industry Association's survey of the world's leading derivatives exchanges, down 4.4 percent from 1.42 billion in 2014. 
The company has continued a strategy of expanding by buying minority stakes in other Latin American exchanges. It acquired its Brazilian rival, Cetip SA, in April of 2016, making it the dominant exchange in Brazil. It also purchased minority stakes in Chile’s Bolsa de Comercio de Santiago and Mexico’s Bolsa Mexicana de Valores SAB.
BM&FBovespa became the top shareholder of the Bolsa de Valores de Colombia in July of 2016, buying 9.99 percent of the Colombian exchange for 44 million reais ($13 million).
The bourse has said it wants to play a role in the financial integration of Latin America.
BM&FBovespa previously had an order routing agreement with CME Group and and developed a mutli-asset class platform that allowed CME Group customers to trade at BM&F through CME Globex.  However, it sold its 4 percent stake in CME Group on April 7, 2016 to raise funds to buy Cetip.
BM&FBOVESPA's benchmark equity index is known in Brazil as the Indice Bovespa (IBovespa) but is also called the Bovespa Index by many western news sources. It is made up of the the market's most liquid stocks and is based on total returns weighted by their trading volume on the BOVESPA stock exchange.
