The Wiener Börse AG (also known as the Vienna Stock Exchange) is the only stock exchange in Vienna, Austria, and one of the most established exchanges in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. The business of the Vienna Stock Exchange is based on four cornerstones: Securities trading and listing, market data, index calculation and IT services.


Wiener Börse is one of the world's oldest exchanges and was founded in 1771 during the reign of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria in order to provide a market for state issued bonds.


The Vienna Stock Exchange was founded in 1771, making it one of the oldest stock exchanges in the world. Today, it is a modern infrastructure company with a focus on customers and market needs. Apart from traditional exchange operations (trading and listings), new lines of business have been established in the past years such as data vending, index calculation and providing IT services to other exchanges in Central and Eastern Europe. This diversification has helped the exchange to build a stable economic base.

The Austrian Traded Index (ATX), the leading index of Wiener Börse, tracks the price trends of the blue chips on Wiener Börse in real time. The composition of the ATX is reviewed every year in March and September. The main criteria for inclusion or deletion are the capitalized free float and stock exchange trading volumes.

The Vienna Stock Exchange is a 100% subsidiary of the holding CEESEG AG.
