Luxembourg Stock Exchange
Established in 1927, the Luxembourg Stock Exchange is today the principal centre for the listing of international securities. It currently lists around 45,000 securities, of which some 30,000 bonds issued by 3,500 issuers based in some 105 countries around the world.
The second segment in order of importance is that of undertakings for collective investment, with more than 7,000 different instruments. This is followed by Global Depositary Receipts issued by companies based in countries that are moving towards industrialisation, such as India.
The Luxembourg Stock Exchange offers two markets to issuers:
- a regulated market by European rules
- a Euro MTF market which enables non-European issuers who do not require a European passport to obtain a listing in a recognised financial centre in Europe.
The Luxembourg Stock Exchange offers specialised media and data vending companies a range of information products that provide institutional and private investors with data on all 46,000 listed securities. This information is supplemented by data available via the portal of Finesti S.A., a company specialising in the collection, processing and dissemination of Luxembourg and European investment fund data that has been an integral part of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange since May 2002.
The Luxembourg Stock Exchange is a founding member of the World Federation of Stock Exchanges and the Federation of European Securities Exchanges.
