The BEL 20

Our national blue chip index is based on the performance of the 20 most representative companies of the Belgian market.

Launched in 1991, the BEL 20 was part of a new generation of indices, representing a basket of well-defined stocks on which options and futures contracts could be based. The BEL 20 is designed to be representative of the Belgian equity market and must be liquid and diversified enough to trade smoothly. Today, the index serves as an underlying for structured products, funds, exchange-traded funds, options and futures.

The BEL 20 not only plays its part in measuring the evolution of our financial markets, it is one of our strongest brands and the most widely recognised symbol of the Belgian market.

Supervision of the Belgian financial sector

Since 1 April 2011, the supervision of the Belgian financial sector is organised with two autonomous regulatory bodies, the Belgian National Bank (BNB) and the Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA).

This bipartite model, known as the “Twin Peaks” model, is intended to provide a structure for the two major objectives of the supervision of the financial sector:

  • maintaining the macro and micro-economic stability of the financial system, which falls under the competence of the BNB, and
  • ensuring that market processes are equitable and transparent, that relationships between market participants are appropriate and that clients are treated honestly, fairly and professionally, tasks which fall within the competence of the FSMA. The FSMA is also responsible for Prospectus, Transparency and Market Abuse regulations.

Rule Book

A single Euronext Rule Book governs trading on all Euronext Securities and Derivatives Markets. It contains both harmonised and non-harmonised, or local, rules.

The harmonised rules are as follows:

The non-harmonised rules are as follows:

  • Rule Book II and Notices applicable to Euronext Brussels, the regulated market operated by Euronext Brussels SA/NV.
