Pre-IPO & Listing
Pre-IPO and listing

For start-ups, the crucial phase often comes when the business needs funding to make itself known on the market and to drive growth. Deutsche Börse launched its Deutsche Börse Venture Network® to help companies at this stage of their lives. The Group also invests in attractive fintech companies via its venture capital platform, DB1 Ventures. An initial public offering (IPO) is when a company goes public on the capital markets for the first time. Large and medium-sized enterprises, both from within and outside Germany, can raise equity and debt capital by listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Investors can share in the growth of the real economy – and can help facilitate it with the money they invest. 

Trading
Trading

Deutsche Börse operates regulated markets for equities, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), bonds, certificates, options and many other products via the Xetra®, Börse Frankfurt and Tradegate trading venues. Eurex® is a trading platform for derivatives, financial instruments based on other instruments (e.g. equities, indices, government bonds, currencies or commodities). They also include a large number of products of the EEX (European Energy Exchange) group, comprising not only energy (e.g. electricity) but also related products (e.g. emission allowances) and commodities (e.g. agricultural products). 360T operates a trading platform for financial instruments such as currencies, money market products and interest rates. 

Clearing
Clearing

Eurex Clearing AG, European Commodity Clearing AG and Nodal Clear, LLC – Deutsche Börse Group’s clearing houses – minimise default risk by acting as partners for all buyers and sellers. This reduces our clients’ exposure and hence leverages financing and capital efficiencies. These benefits – coupled with the regulatory goal of settling more business via central counterparties (CCPs) – mean that using CCPs for clearing is also a stability factor and a core component of the financial sector. Deutsche Börse Group offers efficient clearing of derivatives, securities and securities financing transactions, as well as of currency and commodities transactions.

Settlement
Settlement

Settlement comes after trading and clearing, and ensures that the individual positions are recorded correctly and that cash is exchanged for securities. In addition, it ensures that the individual client securities accounts are credited. Clearstream, Deutsche Börse Group’s post-trade services provider, is responsible for the efficient global settlement of securities transactions.

Custody
Custody

Once they have been correctly settled, assets are held in custody. Clearstream manages them for the entire time they are held in custody and offers services, which include performing corporate actions and making dividend payments, for all types of securities. In addition, end-to-end reporting and ring-fencing of deposited collateral allow market participants to meet their regulatory obligations efficiently.
