UN Global Compact

Statement of the Executive Board

Dear Sir or Madam,

Politicians, regulators and market participants worldwide have created initiatives with the aim of improving the safety, integrity and transparency of the capital markets. These efforts centre on the aspiration to apply the high standards of the regulated markets to the largely unregulated, off-exchange sections of the capital markets.

We support this development and intend to provide investors with on-exchange solutions for an even broader spectrum of asset classes – not just for trading, but also for the clearing, settlement and risk management as well as for the custody of securities.

In this way, we contribute to the stability of the global capital markets – and this is at the heart of our corporate responsibility as an exchange organisation.

Already in 2004, we adopted a statement in cooperation with a number of international exchanges on the particular role and responsibility of exchange organisations regarding the principles of the UN Global Compact.
