Today, in a world of constant change and upheaval, our commitment to responsible, long-term prosperity is more important than ever. Though we’re proud to be located in the heart of Europe, Deutsche Börse Group is also a market infrastructure provider for the world.

Working for everyone

‘Growth’ shouldn’t simply mean increased profits for large corporations and financiers.

It should mean an economy that works for everyone. To make this kind of growth a reality, we apply our unique formula: stability + competitiveness.

By creating a stable economic framework, we aim to help people live their lives in confidence and comfort. While giving businesses the freedom to make plans, to experiment, learn, and invest in the future.

Stability sets entrepreneurial minds free, with fewer worries and more confidence – creating a culture of healthy competition and sustainable growth. We nurture this competition by investing in emerging technologies, enhancing access to capital for smaller businesses, and supporting start-ups as well as blue chips.

At Deutsche Börse Group, we appreciate that every action we take ultimately has an effect on people's lives. That’s why – with our formula – we aim to help generate the kind of growth that benefits every business, and anyone with hopes for the future.

Stability + Competitiveness = Growth
