Compass 2023

Compass 2023The mid-term growth strategy Compass 2023 of Deutsche Börse Group

The medium-term growth strategy Compass 2023 lays out the strategic direction of Deutsche Börse for the coming years. The most important growth drivers include the latest capital market trends, such as the development from OTC to on-exchange trading, ESG, the increasing importance of the buy-side, the shift towards passive investing and the digitisation of the financial sector. 

Within the scope of its strategy, Deutsche Börse targets net revenue growth of around 10% on average per annum until 2023. As part of that, secular initiatives are expected to contribute around 5% growth and the M&A contribution is expected to increase to around 5% as well. 

A first important milestone of Compass 2023 was already the acquisition of ISS, a leading provider of governance solutions, ESG data and analytics. The move has positioned Deutsche Börse as a leading global provider of ESG data and analytics. 

At the beginning of June 2021, Deutsche Börse completed its acquisition of Clearstream Fund Centre (CFC), making it the sole owner of the fund distribution platform based in Zurich. Deutsche Börse Group also announced on 29 June 2021 that it had signed binding contracts for the acquisition of a two-thirds majority stake in Zurich-based Crypto Finance AG, an independent finance group that offers trading, custody and investment services for digital assets to institutional and professional clients.

In the future, you will find all the important announcements that will contribute to the new growth strategy below.
