Organizational model of stock exchange
- Private company for profit
Limited Exchange Self-Regulatory Organization (SRO) Model
- Due to the involvement of the CSSF and the European Commission, the Luxembourg Stock Exchange wields relatively little regulatory power. The exchange has the power to set rules for the companies listed on its exchange, but ultimate authority falls upon the CSSF and general laws come from the European Commission.
About the stock exchange
- Our identity: Since our founding in 1928, we have developed extensive experience in the field of listing and trading of globally issued securities. Our focus has always been international and this has allowed us to become the leader in international listings. We are the largest stock exchange in terms of international bond listings. We are also a leading exchange for other types of international issues, such as global depositary receipts. A largely local shareholding structure allows us to remain independent in our decisions. A final advantage is our subsidiary Fundsquare, which specialises in information services for investment funds. Source.
