FUTOP Clearing Centre Introduces Market Maker Scheme

Date 08/11/2001

Friday 9 November the FUTOP Clearing Centre introduces a market maker scheme. Three Danish members and a member of Stockholmsbörsen have agreed to quote prices: Danske Bank A/S, Nordea Securities Bank Danmark A/S, Sydbank A/S and Bid & Ask AB.

In June members of both Stockholmsbörsen and the OM Exchange in London gained access to trading Danish futures and options on the same system and in the same order book as members of the FUTOP Clearing Centre.

Owing to this the liquidity is increasing, and we follow up on that by introducing a market maker scheme for futures and options on the KFX index as well as options on individual shares.

"The knowledge of Danish derivatives and the trading in the products have increased considerably during the summer, and we see the trend continuing into the autumn. Consequently, we have succeeded in attracting a sufficient number of market makers in Danish derivatives issued by the FUTOP Clearing Centre, and because of their efforts and support a basis for renewed optimism for the Danish derivatives market has been made" says Mr Jan Ovesen, CFO and Head of Trading.
