Open Day 2019

“Technological innovation has always been a part of our DNA,” said Christoph Böhm, CIO and Member of the Deutsche Börse Executive Board, in his opening speech at this year’s Open Day. The annual IT conference took place for the 12th time on 26 September 2019.

The programme was built around latest key issues in the field of IT in financial markets, with speakers such as Wolfgang Eholzer, Member of the Executive Board and Chief Technology Officer of Eurex Frankfurt AG, or Manfred Matusza, Member of the Executive Board of Eurex Clearing AG, sharing insights about trading and clearing IT infrastructure.

Not only professionals from Deutsche Börse made the Open Day a successful event, also experts from partners and sponsors contributed with their insights and knowledge to a rounded off programme. Participants had the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and share best practices either in one of the various workshops and presentations or together with the Deutsche Börse specialists from the exchange lab.

Panel discussion “Decentralised market infrastructure – the future of financial markets?”
