Cboe Global Markets has made a definitive agreement to acquire EuroCCP, a pan-European equities clearing house. The transaction will bring together two companies that champion competition, open access and clearing interoperability in Europe. Additionally, Cboe’s ownership of EuroCCP is expected to provide opportunity to pursue the development of equity derivatives trading and clearing capabilities in the region, subject to regulatory approvals. EuroCCP clears trades for 39 trading venues, which represent close to 95% of Europe’s equity landscape. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2020.
