Eurex, the international derivatives exchange, today announced that it has received regulatory exemption from the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) in Québec to offer its full suite of products in the province of Québec, Canada.

Eurex is the first-ever foreign derivatives exchange to receive such an exemption by AMF.

“For the first time, Eurex’s entire product range will be available in a key North American market. This is an exciting opportunity to admit customers as new members in Quebec and introduce to them our diverse, highly liquid futures and options products,” said Michael Peters, member of the Eurex Executive Board.

Customers from Québec now have direct access to trading on Eurex and to leading Eurex products including benchmark index futures based on indices like EURO STOXX 50®, DAX® and SMI®, as well as Europe’s most important interest rate derivatives Bund, Bobl and Schatz.
