|Dear EuroCCP Member,
I am delighted to inform you that Cboe has confirmed a go-live date for Cboe Europe Derivatives, its new Amsterdam-based equity derivatives exchange, of Monday, 6 September 2021, subject to regulatory approvals.
As you’ll be aware, EuroCCP is expanding into equity derivatives to provide clearing services for this exchange. This is the first major joint initiative between the two companies since EuroCCP was acquired by Cboe in July 2020.
We are also excited by the group of participants that have been secured, so far, to participate in the initiative. Participant bank and clearing firms include ABN Amro Clearing, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. Market-makers and proprietary trading firms that have already confirmed their participation include All Options, Da Vinci Derivatives, DRW, Flow Traders, Liquid Capital Markets and Susquehanna International Securities.
The press release regarding these announcements is attached.
Expanding into equity derivatives is a natural expansion of EuroCCP’s pan-European cash equities business, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to help bring competition to the European equity derivatives marketplace through this initiative as part of the Cboe group.
The exchange will launch initially with futures and options based on six Cboe Europe equity indices, with further products added based on customer demand.
I would like to thank you for your continued support and on behalf of the EuroCCP team, I look forward to continuing our partnership and collaboration to bring efficient clearing and innovation to you.
CEO, EuroCCP N.V.
