The Hamburg Exchanges
Tradition & Innovation
In 1558, the merchants of Hamburg obtained the right from the “Ehrbarer Rat dieser guten Stadt Hamburg” (respectable Council of this good city of Hamburg) to prepare a site at the Trost bridge for their daily meetings.
And thus began the history of Germany’s oldest and most versatile exchange, in what was Hamburg’s port area at the time. This history is closely connected with that of the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, which is based in the classicist Exchange building. The Hamburg Exchange is characterised by the preservation of timeless values, such as the reliability of the business handshake as well as by a permanent willingness to innovate and adapt to market requirements. You will find innovative offerings here, such as trading in the shares of open and closed-end funds as well as face-to-face meetings on the trading floor...
