Berliner Börse

The former building of the Berlin Stock Exchange, designed by Friedrich Hitzig, as it appeared in 1886.

Börse Berlin AG (or Berlin Stock Exchange) is a stock exchange based in Berlin, Germany, founded in 1685 through an edict of Great Elector Friedrich Wilhelm and is one of the oldest exchanges in Germany. In order to address internationalisation and growing consolidation pressure, Börse Berlin has pursued a successful niche strategy since the mid-nineties, with a particular focus on trading the widest possible range of foreign stocks. With the advent of MiFID (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive), the exchange has decided to realign itself completely with its new market segment Equiduct Trading, the exchange will be truly pan-European. Equiduct Trading will allow Börse Berlin to expand its service offering, which until recently was primarily addressing retail investors, by offering custom made solutions for professional market participants.

Through the acquisition of a majority stake in EASDAQ NV, the sole owner of Equiduct Systems Ltd and the ETS trading platform, Börse Berlin has gained control of and access to a state-of-the-art electronic trading system. Börse Berlin will remain headquartered in Berlin (operating under the brand "Equiduct Trading"), but has opened additional offices in London and Paris in order to underline its pan-European ambitions. Professional market participants, that make use of the Equiduct Trading market model, can guarantee to their customers that their orders will receive best execution in accordance with MiFID regulations. London based Equiduct Systems, part of the Börse Berlin Equiduct Trading Group, will provide transaction services for Börse Berlin which will define the legal and regulatory framework of the Equiduct Trading segment. The Equiduct Trading segment is an integral part of the state-monitored and regulated Börse Berlin.

The Börse is housed in Ludwig-Erhard-Haus designed by Nicholas Grimshaw at Fasanenstraße 85 in Berlin-Charlottenburg.
