They come to discuss plans for the new year, to share their expectations of the markets or even just to network. Around 850 people attended Deutsche Börse's annual kickoff meeting on Monday, 22 January 2018. Company headquarters “The Cube” became a major event venue once again.

Supervisory Board Chairman Dr Joachim Faber welcomed the guests and opened the kickoff. Looking at the difficult year for Deutsche Börse in 2017, he thanked employees and managers, commenting that “they had done an excellent job in spite of everything.” Evidence of that is the 27 percent rise in the share price. “We have rediscovered our enthusiasm.”

The evening's guest speaker was Günther Oettinger, European Commissioner for Budget and Human Resources. The experienced politician advocated the European idea that he said has proven itself time and again despite all criticism. Europe should fight to keep its values. He said, that to do that also takes more self-confidence on the international stage.

CEO Dr Theodor Weimer highlighted the company's strengths in his brief speech. He said he sees a lot of opportunities for the company, for instance, in the data business, risk management, post-trading and new products in currencies, commodities and bonds. He underscored this by saying, “We can, we want to and we will grow.” The company headquarters and management in the financial centre Frankfurt, he noted, are valuable assets to this end.

A convivial atmosphere marked the second part of the evening. Musical trio “Evas Apfel” set the mood, while caterer Aramak provided the guests with excellent food that included something for everyone's taste. The annual kickoff was an all-round success and one more reason for the attending financial centre players to start off the new year with enthusiasm.

The Deutsche Börse Annual Reception in London took place at Merchant Taylors' Hall on 1 February.
