Brussels, 26 May 2015 – Euronext Brussels today officially inaugurated its new office in Brussels in the presence of the Belgian Minister of Finance, Johan Van Overtveldt.
Euronext’s new office is located in the Marquis Building, Rue du Marquis, 1, in Brussels, next to the Central Station.
The new location in the heart of Brussels maintains the strong ties between Euronext and the Belgian ecosystem, reinforcing its key role in financing Belgium’s real economy. Better suited to the company's needs, the new premises are also a better fit with Euronext’s new culture of efficiency, growth and innovation.
Vincent Van Dessel, CEO of Euronext Brussels, commented, “We are delighted to open our new office in Brussels in the presence of the Minister of Finance. His presence today confirms the importance of the Brussels stock exchange in the financing of the Belgian economy. Our move from the historical exchange building was a logical step in our evolution as all financial transactions now happen electronically. Our new office is modern and functional and has been designed to facilitate contacts and collaboration between our teams. It remains ideally located in the centre of Brussels, close to the Belgian business community.”
To celebrate the inauguration, Johan Van Overtveldt, Minister of Finance, rang the bell in Brussels to open trading on Euronext’s European markets.
