Quotation Board

Part of the Open Market segment

The Quotation Board is a part of the Open Market segment at Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse (FWB ®, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange). It has replaced the Second Quotation Board in the course of the resegmentation of the equity markets in 2012.

All companies whose shares are already listed or included at another international or domestic trading venue and apply for admission to the Open Market are included in the Quotation Board.

The Entry Standard forms the other part of the Open Market segment. Companies have to file a public offering including a prospectus to be included in this segment.
