  • Optiver invests in Equiduct

    Optiver acquired a non-controlling stake in the Pan-European trading platform, Equiduct, this week. The investment follows almost two years of market making by Optiver on the platform and was part of a funding round that saw €3.25 million invested by several investors.

    Kjelle Blom, Chief Operating Officer of Optiver Europe said, “Optiver believes in Equiduct’s potential to improve transparency, price discovery and execution costs. Our investment aims to realise Equiduct’s long-term growth potential, which will be beneficial for all market participants.”

    The partnership was a natural fit as both Optiver and Equiduct are dedicated to improving the market – Equiduct by ensuring better prices for end-investors through its Pan-European smart order router and Optiver by consistently providing the market with competitive pricing and liquidity.

    Optiver joins Virtu, Börse Berlin, Dr. Jos Peeters and other parties as investors.
