Mr. Patel has over fifteen years of experience in financial market infrastructure and joins from SVIFT, where he was most recently Head of Securities with responsibility for the global leadership of securities strategy.

Nathan Tiefenbrunchairman of Cboe Europe, said: “We are delighted to have Vikesh lead Cboe Clear Europe. He has a long and impressive reputation in the post-trade securities industry, both in Europe and globally. We are excited to be able to leverage his expertise to support Cboe Clear Europe’s strategic growth and further enhance its position as a leading pan-European clearing house. I would also like to express my gratitude Arnoud Siegmann for the period in which he served as interim president of Cboe Clear Europe, in addition to his ongoing role as chief operating officer.”

Vikesh Patel said: “I am honored to be appointed as the next Chairman of Cboe Clear Europe. Having been a client, partner and competitor of Cboe Clear Europe for many years, I am aware of the company’s strong reputation, particularly for its exceptional level of client service, innovation and risk management expertise. The company is at an exciting time in its development and I look forward to leading it into its next phase of growth.”

Cboe completed the acquisition of Cboe Clear Europe (formerly EuroCCP) in July 2020. Under Cboe’s ownership, the company has enhanced its position as the leading pan-European clearinghouse for cash equities, increasing volume in venues that enable fully interoperable clearing as well as those that have adopted preferred clearing. The preferred model is used in venues that do not support interoperable clearing and allows Cboe Clear Europe to clear trades provided both other parties have selected it as their preferred clearing provider. Cboe Clear Europe’s volume for this service was 47.7 million over the past 11 months November 30, 2022compared to 9.1 million in 2021. Cboe Clear Europe has also diversified its clearing of equity derivatives in support of Cboe Europe Derivatives (CEDX), Cboe’s pan-European derivatives exchange launched in September 2021.

Cboe Clear Europe operates as an independent subsidiary of the Cboe Group, maintaining a separate governance structure and management team. Additional information about the company and its services can be found here: clear.cboe.com/europe
