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

Constituting the key vehicle for interest representation, Government Relations acts as the gateway to the political and regulatory sphere. Bringing together an international team of experts on legislative and political processes at regional, national, supranational and global level, the Section designs and implements DBG's advocacy strategies concerning key regulatory and political issues.

Deploying a multitude of instruments, Government Relations leverages DBG's business strategy by mitigating risks and developing opportunities in the political and regulatory context. The Section provides qualitative and timely information throughout the whole legislative lifecycle to ensure informed engagement, and represents DBG's interests in associations such as the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE), the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE), the European Association of CCP Clearing Houses (EACH) and the European Central Securities Depositories Association (ECSDA).

Managing the group-wide interaction with key political and regulatory stakeholders, such as from Ministries, Parliaments or the European Commission, Government Relations is steered out of Brussels and stretches across Berlin, Eschborn and Luxembourg to maximise DBG's resonance.
