Liquidity Providers

In addition to the MiFID II requirements, Euronext maintains Liquidity Provider Programmes on some specific instruments to accommodate product and participant requirements. These Liquidity Provider Programmes are not subject to MiFID II regulations.

The Euronext Liquidity Provider Programmes cover liquidity provision activities conducted by direct members of Euronext. 

The Liquidity Provider Programme for Equities covers Equities listed on Euronext regulated markets, Euronext Growth and Euronext Access (all shares excluding those in the Euronext 100 index).

The Programme is limited to Liquidity Providers conducting activities on behalf of an issuer (ie: having a contract with the listed company to provide liquidity).


There are two types of Liquidity Provider for Equities:

  • Permanent Liquidity Provider (for equities traded continuously)
  • Auction Liquidity Provider (for equities traded in auction mode only)
