Our company itself is well equipped for the future. This was demonstrated at this year’s Annual General Meeting, which focused on the topics of growth, technology and sustainability. You can find all highlights from our Annual General Meeting at a glance in this newsletter. 

Deutsche Börse also offers innovation and growth through its index subsidiary STOXX. Next week, STOXX is hosting its annual “Innovate2Invest” conference in London.
