Euronext Norwegian Derivatives contracts expands to green stocks

Back

Oslo, 12 February 2021 – From today options and futures will be listed on the green companies Tomra, NEL og Scatec. 

In December 2020, the Oslo Børs Derivatives market successfully migrated onto the Euronext Optiq® platform, further supporting the growth of Oslo Børs thanks to an enlarged pool of liquidity and investors, and a flexible and agile trading technology.  

“Following this milestone, the Norwegian contracts are benefiting from increased interest from the Euronext member base. Multiple Euronext clients have already extended their membership to the Oslo market, and others will follow over the next weeks and months. As more members connect with the local market liquidity, we expect to see improvements in liquidity and volumes on the OBX Index Future, OBX Index Options and the Individual Equity Options contracts already listed,” says Øivind Amundsen, President and CEO of Oslo Børs.

 “NEL, Tomra and Scatec have been at the centre of investors' attention, as they have been part of a green wave of sustainable investing on Oslo Børs in 2020,” explains Amundsen. 

Options and futures on these three stocks, in addition to the sports retailer XXL ASA are available from today.
