Stock Exchange

Berlin Stock Exchange

Börse Berlin, the Berlin Stock Exchange, has a history dating back to 1685. It was the first market to trade Eastern European securities after countries in that part of Europe transitioned to market economies in the early 1990s.

Since closing its trading floor in 2006, the exchange has operated entirely electronically via its XONTRO and ETS platforms. The XONTRO exchange is controlled by human order-book managers, which allows for greater investor security because order-book managers can interfere in the event of market manipulation. The ETS exchange (Equiduct) uses information from many European exchanges to deliver a clear picture of the genuine liquidity of securities.

Contracts traded on this exchange include stocks, bonds, funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), exchange traded commodities (ETCs), certificates and warrants. The Börse Berlin specializes in trading foreign equities and bonds, with around 15,000 stocks from issuers in more than 80 countries available. UBS is among the banks which participate in the exchange.

Trading hours: Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. CET (UTC+1)
Settlement cycle: T+2
