Position Papers

With our position papers we engage in political debates and expert discussions regarding capital market issues - representing the interests of our members. Each year, numerous and detailed positions cover the various areas of our work: the primary market, the secondary market, the governance of listed companies and the economic education.

Below you will find our position papers which focus on European legislation - mostly in English and partially in German language. All our positions including papers with focus on national topics you will find on our German website.

We reject recent proposals to shorten trading hours on stock exchanges in the EU. From the point of view of publicly listed companies, shortening trading hours would restrict their ability to raise liquidity on capital markets for their various projects. The equity culture in Germany and Europe would also suffer from shortened trading hours.
