Business newsletter

September 2019

Dear reader,

“contigo” is Spanish for “with you”. The name of our new provider of investment information, Qontigo, goes back to this term. We at Deutsche Börse combine this with continuous innovation and partnership with our clients. The newly created growth company combines Deutsche Börse’s leading indices – STOXX® and DAX® – with Axioma’s best-of-breed portfolio management and risk analysis software.

Speaking of partnerships: by signing a contract with Google Cloud, we now have another strong partner on board to move ahead with our cloud strategy and to further shape our digitised future. In addition, we will co-engineer security and data privacy solutions for the financial services industry.

Things will remain dynamic with the IT Open Day 2019 as the week continues. On 26 September, IT professionals, managers and traders from the financial sector and experts from Deutsche Börse will come together at our headquarters in Eschborn. A highlight of the conference: the high-calibre blockchain panel with Jens Hachmeister. Our newsletter will take you to the event page where we will inform you about the event and the programme. 

Last but not least: on its recently relaunched website, our training provider, the Capital Markets Academy, offers an improved user experience – with a convenient seminar search function, free online trainings and video teasers of its speakers. Book your seminar now until 30 September 2019 and receive a 10 per cent discount with the voucher code “Start2019”.

I hope you enjoy reading and discovering this edition of our newsletter!

Kind regards,
Mareike Sich
