Regulatory model
Limited Exchange Self-Regulatory Organization (SRO) Model

About the stock exchange
Location: Luxembourg
  • Our identity: Since our founding in 1928, we have developed extensive experience in the field of listing and trading of globally issued securities. Our focus has always been international and this has allowed us to become the leader in international listings. We are the largest stock exchange in terms of international bond listings. We are also a leading exchange for other types of international issues, such as global depositary receipts. A largely local shareholding structure allows us to remain independent in our decisions. A final advantage is our subsidiary Fundsquare, which specialises in information services for investment funds. Source.
