Performance of Cboe Global Markets
In July 2021, Cboe Global Markets posted a strong jump in futures ADV. The operator also saw a substantial jump in Index Options ADV and European Equities ADNV. Earlier this year, Cboe Global Markets completed the acquisition of Chi-X Asia Pacific. The operator is planning to accelerate its expansion in Japan and Australia through the latest acquisition.
“Cboe plans to fully integrate Chi-X Asia Pacific into its existing global business operations and technology platforms, beginning with the integration of Chi-X Asia Pacific and BIDS. Chi-X Australia and Chi-X Japan are planned to migrate to Cboe’s state-of-the-art trading platform thereafter. Providing one, unified technology platform will help provide market participants greater access to Cboe’s diverse product set and more efficiency, resiliency, and functionality when trading across Cboe’s markets,” the operator mentioned in an announcement recently.
Cboe closed the acquisition of the US-based BIDS Trading in January 2021 for an undisclosed price.
