All trading in securities listed on the Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius exchanges is conducted via member firms of the exchanges. These includes local and international banks and brokerage firms.
To be eligible for membership on the Baltic exchanges, a company must be authorized to carry out securities operations and be under adequate supervision by a competent authority in the company’s home country. Members also need approval by the exchanges’ management boards.
A prospective member must have a proper and compliant business organization, requisite risk management routines, secure technical systems, and other appropriate arrangements for participation in securities trading.
At least two employees of the company must be authorized for trading via the INET electronic securities trading system for equities and the Genium INET trading system for fixed-income securities.
