Deutsche Börse launches bonds trading on Xetra

Related Topics

Deutsche Börse has launched the “continuous auction with specialists” trading model for the trading of bonds on Xetra.

Initially, around 700 corporate bonds denominated in Euros listed on FWB Frankfurt Stock Exchange’s regulated and open markets will be tradable in this new model on Xetra.

Other types of bonds are to be included gradually.

The model combines the advantages of trading with the support of specialists and those of fully electronic trading on Xetra. The model allows these specialists to provide for tradability and high price quality even for small order sizes.

With this new trading model, private investors and small to medium-sized institutional investors will benefit from the high execution quality in on-exchange bonds trading with continuous quote presence and near-time execution by the specialists, as well as no commission fee.

Three brokerage firms that fulfill the criteria to act as bonds trading specialists, Close Brothers Seydler Bank, ICF Kursmakler and Wolfgang Steubing, will be responsible for trading in the 700 or so selected corporate bonds on Xetra.
