About MIAX Options Exchange
MIAX is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Miami International Holdings, Inc. (MIH). MIAX has assembled a team with deep rooted experience in developing, operating and trading on options exchanges. The initial focus of MIH is to leverage management's expertise and relationships in the equity options space to launch the MIAX Options Exchange. MIAX intends to launch the MIAX Equities Exchange once the MIAX Options Exchange is operational and plans to pursue Latin American equity listings. The launch of the MIAX Equities Exchange is subject to SEC approval. The vision for the MIAX Equities Exchange is to become a marketplace that enables access to the Latin American markets, a place where global Hispanic entrepreneurs can seek capital and growth opportunities, and an exchange where Latin American companies will want to be listed. MIAX believes that Miami is the ideal location for taking advantage of the rapidly developing business opportunities emanating from the Americas and that Latin American companies will be interested in listing on the MIAX because of its presence in Miami. The MIAX Futures Exchange is also planned as a follow-on initiative. The launch of the MIAX Futures Exchange is subject to CFTC approval.
