Organizational model of stock exchange
- Listed company for profit; demutualized in 2000
Government (Statutory) Model
- The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) classifies Euronext’s European cash markets as a regulated market. As such, the real-time monitoring performed by Euronext’s cash market operations and technical support is formally enforced, and our trading rules and procedures are approved by our five regulators. This regulatory and organizational system gives Euronext the power to efficiently manage crisis situations and extraordinary circumstances. Some of the markets organized by Euronext are exchange regulated, which means they are subject to a body of rules laid down by the market operator, Euronext. They are not regulated markets as defined by the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID). These structured, exchange regulated markets offer simplified access to financial markets and streamlined listing requirements for companies from every sector of the economy, while ensuring compliance with rules on investor disclosure and the control of financial information.

About the stock exchange
Location of the listed holding: Amsterdam, Netherlands. Both Euronext and Euronext Amsterdam have an exchange licence from the Dutch authorities to operate regulated markets. This means that they are subject to the regulation and supervision of the Dutch Minister of Finance and the Autoriteit Financiële Markten (“AFM”). Since the creation of Euronext in 2000, the Dutch regulators have taken the view that the direct parent company of Euronext Amsterdam, as controlling shareholder, has to be seen as co-market operator and, accordingly, also requires an exchange licence. Pursuant to section 5:26 paragraph 1 of the Dutch Financial Supervision Act it is prohibited in the Netherlands to operate or to manage a regulated market without a licence granted by the Dutch Minister of Finance. The Dutch Minister of Finance may, at any time, amend or revoke the licence if necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the markets or the protection of investors. The licence may also be revoked for non-compliance with applicable rules. Euronext is the leading pan-European exchange in the Eurozone, spanning Belgium, France, Ireland, Norway, the Netherlands, Portugal, the UK and Ireland. Created in 2000, it unites markets which date back to the start of the 17th century. It is the primary exchange in the Euro zone with nearly 1,500 listed issuers worth more than €4.5 trillion in market capitalization as of end May 2019, an unmatched blue chip franchise consisting of 20+ issuers in the Morningstar® Eurozone 50 Index℠ and a strong diverse domestic and international client base.
