The VSE generated a turnover of EUR 750 million for the segment in 2019.

In total, the offering on the global market now consists of more than 620 securities from 26 countries.

With immediate effect, the cosmetics company Estée Lauder, the largest international stock exchange operator Nasdaq, the retail chain Foot Locker, the e-commerce website Etsy, the Internet recommendation portal Yelp, the clothing label Levi Strauss (which recently went public) as well as the aviation company Air France-KLM and many others are tradable on the Vienna Stock Exchange.

"Our global market enables domestic investors to trade a wide range of international companies from all kinds of industries and regions," says Christoph Boschan, CEO of the Vienna Stock Exchange.

"Almost every one has products from these companies at home. If I like the product, I also like the company. With shares in the company, I can also profit directly from the company's success."

In the global market segment, three market makers (Baader Bank, Lang & Schwarz and Raiffeisen Centrobank) provide additional liquidity.

With attractive prices, they create the opportunity for continuous trading between 9:00 and 17:30 hours.

Narrow spreads with high volumes enable private investors to execute immediately and more cheaply than abroad.
