Last weekend, Euronext.liffe successfully completed the migration of SWITCH to LIFFE CONNECT, with the transfer of the Amsterdam market on to the platform. Trading started as expected on the new platform on Monday.
Euronext.liffe, the international derivatives business of Euronext, was formed following the purchase of LIFFE by Euronext in 2001. Euronext.liffe has now created a single market for derivatives, by bringing all its derivatives products together on one electronic trading platform.
The migration timetable started with the Brussels and Paris market migrations in 2003 and these were followed with the transfer of the Lisbon market in March 2004 and the Amsterdam market in November 2004.
