Euronext N.V. Wins "Exchange of the Year" Award


London -  3 July 2015 -  Euronext, the primary exchange in the Eurozone, has won the Global Investor / ISF Investment Excellence Award for Exchange of the Year. The exchange was revealed as the global winner during the official award ceremony at the Grange St. Paul’s Hotel in London last night.

With a significant majority of the votes the independent judging panel of international experts voted Euronext as Exchange of the Year from a shortlist of international exchanges. Euronext was rewarded for a range of achievements including its succesful IPO in June 2014, its position as the number one listing venue in continental Europe last year and for being the only exchange with a broad offering in both cash and derivatives markets. The jury praised Euronext for its position as a financer of the real economy in Europe, including SME companies.

The official jury report stated: “Euronext was almost the outright winner this year. The reasons for such a strong showing are numerous, but most significantly Euronext is the only exchange in both cash and derivatives markets, in multiple countries, on a common technology platform. And via its subsidiary EnterNext, the exchange is positioning itself as an attractive alternative source of real economy finance
for Europe’s SMEs: EnterNext had 34 new listed SMEs in 2014 alone.

Jos Dijsselhof, CEO of Euronext, said: “It is a great honour to be “Exchange of the Year”, it’s really a team effort. I would like to dedicate this award to all our employees, as they worked hard on repositioning the company as a leading financing centre in Europe following our IPO last year. I also would like to thank our clients, shareholders and other stakeholders for their ongoing support. Euronext plays a key role at the heart of Europe’s capital and financial markets and we will continue our work to offer easy and efficient access to capital markets.

The Investment Excellence Awards recognises the achievements of asset managers, service providers and associated firms. The Awards are published annually by Global Investor, the Euromoney title covering asset management and asset servicing, publishing for over 25 years
