RegulationDeutsche Börse Regulatory Services – an overview

The international financial crisis has demonstrated quite clearly the necessity for increased transparency and stability in the global financial markets and has sparked a discussion about the role and details of the necessary financial market infrastructure.

As a provider of a highly regulated financial market infrastructure, we share the objective of the national legislator, the European Union as well as the G20 to strengthen transparent and regulated markets. Being a constructive partner, we contribute to the political discussion on suitable national and European initiatives for financial market regulation.

Our joint interest lies in efficient, transparent and secure financial markets.

Based on our involvement in the vast majority of regulatory dossiers and our specific knowledge as a trading venue operator, we are able to present reports and position papers on the implications of certain regulatory proposals for Deutsche Börse Group, our clients, the financial market and society as a whole. Our white papers and studies contribute to a better understanding across many aspects of financial market regulation.

Deutsche Börse has extensive experience in delivering regulatory services and solutions as well as in managing time critical data dissemination. Our objective is to help our clients meet current and future regulatory obligations easily and efficiently.
