Nasdaq is a leading provider of trading, clearing, exchange technology, listing, information and public company services across six continents. In 2008, through the merger with OMX Nasdaq acquired ownership of the Lithuania’s stock exchange Nasdaq Vilnius. As of 2012, Nasdaq is also running the Central Securities Depository of Lithuania, a financial market infrastructure. In Lithuania, Nasdaq drives and contributes to a number of NGO initiatives promoting transparency, sound corporate governance, business ethics and youth’s financial literacy. At the end of 2014, Nasdaq decided to leverage these assets by establishing a new Technology and Business
Support Competence Center in Vilnius. The center is running a range of business critical operations supporting external and internal clients of the Nasdaq group in EMEA, Americas and Asia Pacific regions. Nasdaq continues to develop new solutions and initiatives, and many of them will originate from Vilnius. The Nasdaq Center in Vilnius and its employees become a key part of the Nasdaq’s innovative and agile hub.
