Tallinn/Riga/Vilnius, Nasdaq Baltic Market, July 5, 2024 – Nasdaq (NDAQ) announces that Lightyear Europe has been granted an exchange member status for trading on the Nasdaq Baltic stock exchanges, and also the status of an account operator in the Nasdaq CSD to settle trades and safekeep investors’ assets.

Lightyear Europe is an investment platform that offers investors easy access to investing in stocks from the US, the UK and the EU markets.

“I’m particularly happy to welcome Lightyear to Nasdaq Baltic market as they are an Estonian-founded company, but even more so because of their big ambition. Lightyear was established just a couple of years ago, but their investment platform is already available in a bulk of European markets. Their membership on the Baltic market means that from now on the Baltic equities are also at the fingertips of the investors all across those countries,” said Kristi Sisa, Member of the Management Board of Nasdaq CSD and Head of Nasdaq CSD’s Estonian branch.

Martin Sokk, CEO and co-founder of Lightyear, adds: “We’re so excited to be the first local broker to join Nasdaq Baltic as an official member of the stock exchange. Through our integration, today we’re able to launch Baltic instruments for our users across Europe — adding a top feature request for local investors, and opening up the Baltic market to international investors. This is an important step to raise global awareness of our local businesses, and we’re happy to have achieved it together with the team at Nasdaq!”

Lightyear will trade on the Nasdaq Baltic market under the trading code LYEU.

Lightyear Europe was established in Estonia in 2021 and is currently offering almost 4,000 mixed fractional and non-fractional stocks from the US, the UK and the EU markets as well as access to international ETFs. Lightyear also offers a multi-currency account to deposit, hold and convert across three different currencies, and interest on uninvested funds. Lightyear is authorised and regulated by the Estonian Financial Supervision Authority, and authorised to operate across the European Union.
