Timeline

This section outlines the main events in the lead up to the Cboe NL venue going live. These dates may be subject to change so firms should ensure they check back regularly for updates or contact [email protected] or +44 20 7012 8906.

In the event of a restrictive (UK third country recognition does not extend to EU-27 symbols) or “hard” Brexit, a firm may be prohibited from accessing either Cboe UK or Cboe NL by the regulations in its own jurisdiction. Therefore, access to the Cboe venues will depend on each Participant’s own Brexit arrangements in combination with what may be possible under any eventual agreement between the UK and the EU.
