Boerse Stuttgart is Germany's second-largest stock exchange. It offers trading in equities, securitized derivatives, investment funds and participation certificates. It is also the leading German floor-trading exchange, with about 35 percent of the order book turnover. It is ranked tenth among European stock exchanges in trading volume.[1]


The exchange was founded in 1861, one year after the founding of the local industrial stock exchange association.

At the time of its founding, it was located in the center of Stuttgart. It initially helped finance new technologies and products during the industrial revolution in the 19th century. Later, after 1945, Boerse Stuttgart was key in the development of the southwest part of Germany.

Today, Boerse Stuttgart is increasingly active in countries besides Germany, including the Scandinavian market.[2]

On September 23, 2019, the exchange launched the Boerse Stuttgart Digital Exchange (BSDEX), a fully regulated market that began with bitcoin-euro trading. It plans to offer ethereum, litecoin, and XRP euro trading pairs this year and tokenized assets sometime in 2020. The exchange partnered with Axel Springer, and SolarisBank, which provides payments and custody services.[3][4]

In September 2019, the exchange announced the launch of an online start-up platform called Startbase, with the goal of providing a central map of the entire German start-up "ecosystem." Boerse Stuttgart partnered with the Deutsche Startups Association and began with more than 750 firms and over 600 startup companies.[5]
