Stakeholder management

Stakeholder management

We regularly review the statutory requirements and the demands of rating agencies and (voluntary) market standards and initiatives. We seek dialogue with our internal and external stakeholders continuously and systematically and so determine the focus areas of our work – by means of investor days, employee and client surveys, dialogue with rating agencies and society as a whole, our involvement in various initiatives and our regular materiality analysis, in which we interview our stakeholders with respect to our company and the impact we have on society and the economy.

The Group Regulatory Strategy department, which reports to the CEO, is responsible for holistically positioning Deutsche Börse Group with regard to political and regulatory developments at the national, European and international level. It monitors, analyses and deals with regulatory revenue risks and opportunities. Based on our specific knowledge as a financial market infrastructure provider, we share our expertise about the evolution of the regulatory framework. Thus, we make a permanent contribution to strengthening financial market infrastructure and capital markets as a vital tool for achieving society’s overarching objectives. We take part in consultations on political and regulatory initiatives, for example, and submit comments and papers to explain the implications of certain regulatory proposals for Deutsche Börse Group, our clients, the financial markets and society as a whole. Our white papers and studies also contribute to an improved understanding of specific aspects of financial market regulation.

Deutsche Börse Group continuously interacts with a large number of different stakeholder groups, whose significance for the company we evaluated in an internal survey of the Group’s divisions. Depending on their points of view, i. e. whether they consider Deutsche Börse as a capital market organiser or whether they regard it as a listed company, stakeholders and their interests can vary:
