ASX in a multi-market environment
What is a multi-market environment?
In a multi-market environment trading in ASX-listed securities can take place on more than one trading venue. Australia now has a multi-market environment in line with government policy to introduce competition for market services.
What is ASX's role in a multi-market environment?

ASX functions as an exchange market operator, clearing house, payments system facilitator and central securities depository. ASX also provides a range of services to other listed and trading venues operating in the multi-market environment. In addition, ASX oversees compliance with its operating rules, promotes standards of corporate governance among Australia’s listed companies and helps to educate retail investors. Mindful of the challenges and complexities in a new multi-market environment, ASX has developed and is continuing to work on a range of market services and support tools for our customers, their clients and other market users.
