Optiver Execution Services Disclosures

Anti-Money Laundering Program Disclosure

Optiver Execution Services LLC (“OES”) has established an anti-money laundering program generally designed to comply with all applicable AML rules and regulations.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money-laundering activities, federal law requires OES to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each individual or entity that enters into a customer relationship with OES. Each customer will be asked to provide certain information so that OES may properly establish and verify the customer’s identity.

Business Continuity Plan

Optiver Execution Services LLC (“OES”) has developed a Business Continuity Plan (“BCP”) on how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business in accordance with FINRA Rule 4370. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur.

In the event of a significant business disruption, OES will make an assessment of the overall impact of the disruption on OES’s business with a goal of recovering and resuming operations as quickly as possible. The BCP addresses the following areas: (1) data back‐up and recovery; (2) all mission critical systems; (3) financial and operational assessments; (4) alternate communications with customers; (5) alternate communications between OES and its employees; (6) alternate physical location of employees; (7) critical vendors and other business contacts; (8) regulatory reporting; and (9) communications with regulators.

Significant business disruptions may vary in scope. For example, a disruption may affect only OES, the building in which OES is located, the business district where OES is located or an entire region. Further, the impact of the disruption may also vary from minimal to severe. The extent and severity of the disruption will determine the steps taken by OES. If a disruption only affects OES and is minimal, OES may conclude that it is not necessary to transfer operations to another location. If, on the other hand, a severe disruption affects the entire region, it is more likely that OES will attempt to transfer its operations to a site outside the affected area.

Should there be a serious business disruption, OES clients are encouraged to access information via the OES website (www.optiver.com/institutional-trading/optiver-execution-services) or contact us at [email protected] for further information.
