NEW YORK and LONDON — August 4, 2021 — IPC, a leading global provider of secure, compliant communications and networking solutions for the global financial markets, today announced that it will support Cboe Global Markets, one of the world’s largest exchange holding companies, as it embarks on the launch of Cboe Europe Derivatives, a new pan-European equity derivatives exchange, on September 6, 2021.
Cboe is bringing its U.S. market model to Europe using Cboe technology and plans to launch futures and options on equity indices, most of which trade in Europe.
Cboe Europe Derivatives is a modern, vibrant pan-European derivatives market designed to grow the overall derivatives trading landscape in Europe, while creating new opportunities for customers to express their investment views and manage their equity exposure. Its pan-European model will help provide market participants with the ability to access a modern, on-screen derivatives market through a single exchange and clearing house, creating efficiencies in trading and clearing.
“We are excited to be supporting Cboe in this important strategic initiative,” said Mike Smith, Director, Global Exchange Relations Management at IPC. “The potential for growth is extremely promising. We look forward to bringing our customers into this new marketplace to provide these expanded capabilities.”
