MBOCHIP’s Benefits from the Partnership

MBOCHIP will benefit from B3’s financial backing and access to a broader clientele, while maintaining its operational autonomy. The company was founded in 2009 and has been providing trading screen technologies for various markets, including equities, derivatives, commodities, and currencies.

MBOCHIP’s CEO, Marcelo Oliveira, said that the partnership with B3 is a recognition of the company’s innovation and quality. He said that MBOCHIP will continue to invest in research and development, and to offer cutting-edge solutions for the financial industry.

B3’s Other Partnerships in Technology

The investment in MBOCHIP is not the first time that B3 has partnered with other technology companies to enhance its operations. In July, B3 announced a partnership with Nasdaq to develop a new clearing platform for transaction clearing in the capital markets. The new platform will extend its services to all markets currently handled by B3’s Clearinghouse, covering a wide range of financial products.

The collaboration with Nasdaq allows B3 to leverage Nasdaq’s expertise in managing high-volume and diverse markets, enhancing its post-trade product portfolio and solution capabilities.

Earlier this year, B3 also led a funding round for Vermiculus Financial Technology, a Swedish tech enterprise focused on stock exchanges and clearing technology. The partnership aims to create a cloud-based depository system to accommodate new investors and issuers by 2025.

In summary, B3’s investment in MBOCHIP and its partnerships with Nasdaq and Vermiculus Financial Technology demonstrate the company’s commitment to modernizing its systems and platforms, providing better solutions for institutional investors, and developing innovative technologies for the capital markets.
