Ground-breaking ideas for the benefit of retail investors are a tradition at Börse Stuttgart. Since the introduction of the best price principle in 1995, the market price is geared to the relevant reference markets, so investors are guaranteed the best price available in the market. In 1997, Stuttgart was the first exchange in Germany to establish the best size principle: the minimum order size was reduced to one unit, thus opening securities trading to retail investors.
Founded in 1861, the stock market contributes greatly to the development of Stuttgart as a financial centre. The exchange’s origins go back to the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century. After 1945, as a regional stock exchange, Börse Stuttgart contributed greatly to the German economic miracle in the south-west of the country. Since 2008, Börse Stuttgart has been increasingly active in other countries as well, for instance on the Scandinavian market.
