Pieter schuurs

Pieter Schuurs is the acting President and COO of ICE Endex since 2013 and serves as the Chairman of Europex since 2016. In January 2022 Pieter was appointed as a member of the ESMA Securities and Market Stakeholder group.

The energy exchange ICE Endex is based in Amsterdam and has been established in 2013 following the split of the spot power and spot gas and derivatives business of the former APX-ENDEX.

Intercontinental Exchange, Inc (ICE), based in Atlanta (U.S.A.) is now the sole shareholder of ICE Endex. Previously, the Dutch Gas TSO, Gasunie, had held a 20% minority share for several years after the inception of the company.

Within the group of ICE derivatives exchanges, ICE Endex focuses on serving EU energy markets in addition to operating the U.K. gas balancing market, the OCM. Its flagship derivatives markets are the Dutch gas market, TTF (Title Transfer Facility), which gained prominence as a global gas benchmark and the EUA market (trading of European Emission Allowances) which was transitioned to ICE Endex in mid-2021.

Before Pieter assumed his position at ICE Endex, he had served as COO on the board of APX-ENDEX. Furthermore, his career has included senior leadership roles in the securities industry at Euronext Amsterdam, ING Bank and Robeco, the Dutch asset manager.

Pieter chaired and acted as a member of various Dutch and international representative bodies at the ECB, FBE and Euroclear, focusing on the consolidation and harmonisation of European securities’ infrastructure. He served as Deputy Chairman of the supervisory board of the Dutch Private Investors Association, VEB, until mid-2021. 

Pieter holds a university degree in civil, social and economic law from Utrecht University.
