Euronext has announced the completion of the migration of Italian derivatives trading to its proprietary trading platform Optiq. This marks the final phase in the integration process of Borsa Italiana’s markets onto Euronext’s platform, almost three years after the acquisition of the Borsa Italiana Group.

The migration aims to maximise the benefits of Euronext’s harmonisation process and minimise disruption for Italian markets and other markets within the group, according to a press release. The move is a part of Euronext’s strategic plan to build a single liquidity pool powered by a single technology platform across its markets.

Fabrizio Testa, CEO of Borsa Italiana, highlights the significance of the migration for Italian capital markets and the benefits it brings to both local and global markets, supporting an expanded business mix for the enlarged Borsa Italiana and Euronext client base.
