Deutsche Börse Group is one of the largest exchange organisations worldwide. It organises markets characterised by integrity, transparency and safety for investors who invest capital and for companies that raise capital – markets on which professional traders buy and sell financial instruments according to clear rules and under strict supervision. With its services and systems, Deutsche Börse Group ensures the functioning of these markets and a level playing field for all participants – worldwide.

However, Deutsche Börse Group's products and services are by no means limited to trading “as such”: its business areas cover the entire value chain in the financial services sector, ranging from pre-IPO services and the admission of securities, through trading, clearing and settlement to custody services and other financial instruments, along with collateral and liquidity management. Additionally, the Group provides IT services, indices and market data worldwide.

Field of activity

The Regulation & Compliance team aims to ensure the compliance of Eurex Clearing as the Central Counterparty (“CCP”) and Eurex Frankfurt, as the operator of the exchange Eurex Deutschland (following “Eurex”) with regard to national and international laws and regulations. The aim is to protect Eurex from any harm, which could result from failures to comply with applicable laws and regulations. Therefore, we monitor and on regular basis assess the adequacy and effectiveness of the measures put in place to avoid potential risks of non-compliance. Here, we work in close cooperation with Deutsche Börse Group Compliance.
