Home market principle
We believe in internationalization, but remain loyal to the home market principle. Especially in smaller economies, issuers profit from a listing on their local stock exchanges in their home countries. They benefit from more attention from the media and private investors as well as from higher visibility for international institutional investors. Listed companies receive the best support from their exchanges in the respective home market and thus will continue to be served by them.
The experiences shared by the members of the CEE Stock Exchange Group (CEESEG) help us to continually optimize and enlarge our range of services for exchange-listed companies. Issuers benefit from the close cooperation and the exchange of know-how within the Group as well as from a joint strong market presence at the international level.
Our goals for listed companies are
- to raise the degree of recognition among investors focusing on CEE,
- achieve a broader investor base, and
- increase liquidity.
To this end, we conduct road shows at all major international financial centers jointly with our
bank partners and with listed companies from the four countries of the members of CEESEG.
The companies listed on the member exchanges of CEESEG also benefit from:
- Acquisition of foreign trading members and data vendors: This shifts exchange-listed companies to the center of attention of international investors.
- Implementation of Xetra® as a common trading system across the Group: This gives trading members easier access to the four markets of the members of CEESEG. Over the medium term, this measure will help to boost liquidity.
- Cross membership for trading members: This facilitates access to the member exchanges of the CEE Stock Exchange Group and will stimulate equity trading in the four markets.
- Product innovations: Already, several Group indices have been launched that comprise listed companies of all four member exchanges of CEESEG and thus shift them into the focus of international investors.
Our organizational structure is supportive of both our internationalization strategy as well as
to the home market principle: While each of the member exchanges continues to service its local
market under an independent management, at the international level, the four stock exchanges are
now acting jointly as CEESEG vis-à-vis all major professional market participants.
A holding company, CEESEG AG, is responsible for the strategic and financial management and the
administration of the four stock exchanges as subsidiaries, while the business operations are
carried out by the four Group members.
