Optiq

Following Euronext’s acquisition of Oslo Børs VPS Holding ASA in June 2019, Oslo Børs’ trading systems, across asset classes, will migrate from the Millennium Exchange and SOLA systems to the Euronext Optiq® systems. LCH SA will be appointed as the CCP providing post-trade services for the Derivatives Market. The current interoperable clearing model between SIX X-clear, LCH Ltd and EuroCCP will be continued for the Oslo Børs and Oslo Axess Cash Equities markes. The Oslo Optiq-migration is scheduled for Q3 and Q4 2020, pending regulatory approval and market readiness.
