Our membership team is ready to welcome you

Become a member of the Euronext Cash Market or the Euronext Derivatives Market

To become a member you must complete an application form, undergo a due diligence review and execute an agreement stating you will adhere to all Exchange regulations.

Who can apply for membership

The following types of firm may apply to become a member of the Euronext Cash and Derivatives Markets:

  • Investment Firms or Credit Institutions authorised in the European Economic Area (EEA)
  • Non-MiFID Firms: firms without the right to a MiFID licence (e.g. AIFM licensed companies), including firms established within a Member State of the EEA but excluded from the scope of MiFID, provided that they can demonstrate that either:
    • an application for authorisation pursuant to MIFID is pending or
    • the proposed course of business on the Euronext markets does not require authorisation (e.g. because the firm can benefit from an exemption from authorisation) *
  • Firms from a jurisdiction outside the EU (‘third country firms’), whether or not authorised under MiFID*

* Note that if a Non-MiFID firm cannot demonstrate either a pending application for MiFID authorisation or eligibility for exemption, Euronext cannot accept or process its application for membership.

Becoming a Trading Member in 4 steps

The Euronext membership process is simple and straightforward. The membership department will coordinate the process right up until you start trading.

To start trading and become a new Euronext member you need to submit the relevant information for Euronext applications.

Please first complete and submit our Membership application form and supporting documentation as outlined in the form’s appendix.

Please also provide us with the Trading Platform Access Agreement order form after reading the Trading Platform Agreement terms and conditions.

Every member of the Euronext markets must identify a set of key contacts during its application process. Both securities/cash and derivatives members are required to identify at least two but no more than five Authorised Representative (s) (AR) and at least two Responsible Persons (RP) per member firm.

After you have submitted your application and agreement forms, you need to connect to the market via the Euronext trading platform.

Please finalise your technical connectivity choice and clearing/settlement contracts.

Order a physical connectivity solution to the low-latency, globally secure SFTI network, either directly or indirectly via accredited Application Service Provider (ASP) or Extranet Service Provider (ESP).

Once you are connected, your trading, clearing and settlement access will be configured simultaneously. Validation of order entry by Euronext takes place through conformance tests by Operational Client Services (OCS). You and your clearing partner should also conduct an end-to-end test (from order entry to clearing & settlement) before going live.

Once the Operational Client Services (OCS), Clearing and Legal teams have confirmed your readiness, the Membership team will confirm your start-up date with you.
