Being Public

Being Public We help you fulfill your capital market and disclosure duties

An exchange listing often spells a new challenge for corporate communications: You will have to fulfill disclosure duties of varying degrees of rigor depending on the market you have chosen for your public offering (Prime Standard, General Standard or Scale).

Keep track of what must be communicated when and how and to whom. In this regard, Deutsche Börse acts as your interface to the capital market. We support you in meeting your disclosure duties, nurturing relations to investors, and always keeping an eye on the liquidity of your equity.

IPO line Being Public

We support you after your IPO, too, and amongst other things provide exhaustive and clearly structured explanations of all the subsequent duties associated with the various segments. These include the different types of financial reporting, the publication of price-relevant information and how you should present your company to investors.


Events for Issuers

Deutsches Eigenkapitalforum

Entrepreneurs meet investors – Each year, innovative, fast-growing companies that wish to expand their equity base meet venture capitalists and private equity investors at Europe’s largest capital markets conference. There, they can present their companies to investors and forge important contacts. The programme is rounded out by insightful workshops and plenary lectures and discussions on current topics. Moreover, listed corporations can also make use of the occasion to make their annual presentations to analysts, to nurture contacts with institutional investors, and expand their investor base. The event also features an appealing conference and workshop programme.

Indices group various securities according to defined criteria, such as the market capitalisation of the respective company and exchange turnover in the security, membership of a market or sector – and track how these groups then perform in the capital markets. The indices thus enable comparison between the trend for a particular security and the performance of the relevant reference group. As such, companies are charted within their peer group, enabling investors to make more targeted investment decisions. Deusche Börse offers an innovative selection of indices and index solutions. Deutsche Börse AG makes the decisions regarding the calculation and compilation of equity indices together with the Working Committee for Equity Indices. Learn more about our indices.


We would gladly support you in person for your Investor Relations activities.
