At Optiver we believe in the value of integrity, both of markets as well as its participants. Optiver is therefore highly committed to conduct its business in full compliance with applicable regulation. As financial markets are tightly regulated environments, Optiver responds to the challenge by well resourced compliance teams.

Together with management and the business the Compliance function at Optiver encourages and fosters a culture of integrity. Compliance is mandated to help safeguarding compliant business conduct and to manage regulatory challenges. The compliance teams advise on regulatory developments and risks with respect to Optiver's strategic objectives and ongoing business activities. As an independent control, Compliance also identifies, assesses, monitors and reports on all aspects of compliance risks and works with all areas of business and management to resolve regulatory issues. By establishing necessary policies and risk mitigating measures, the compliance function supports the management of compliance risks and to ensure compliance with internal policies and external legislation. As a further element of its mandate, Compliance also maintains the relationships with Optiver’s regulators by pursuing an open and transparent dialogue.

Optiver is a strong supporter of fair, transparent and efficient markets. To promote these goals we are pro-actively involved in discussions with regulators and law makers around the world and often respond to market consultations on new rules or regulations.
