The strategic partnership with the London Stock Exchange Group

Oslo Børs and London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) signed a strategic partnership agreement in March 2009, meaning that the two exchanges will collaborate on market and product development across equities, fixed income and derivatives markets.

In April 2010 Oslo Børs migrated to the TradeElect trading platform, owned and developed by LSEG. In the fall of 2012 Oslo Børs migrated to Millennium. The platform is developed by Millennium IT, a subsidiary of LSEG. Millennium is one of the fastest and most robust trading platforms in the world today for trading financial instruments and is currently in use by LSE, Johannesburg, Milano and Oslo Børs.

Oslo Børs co-operate closely with LSEG to ensure efficient international distribution of Norwegian derivatives, and in December 2009 the parties implemented the trading platform SOLA® for standardised derivatives, including Linked order book for derivatives.

A common trading platform with LSE further strengthens the collaborative agreement signed in 2009. It also allows for “Co Location” in the LSE data center for those members who require the shortest possible distance to the trading engine located in London.
