Frankfurt Stock Exchange – Lead Brokers – Frankfurt Market Maker

These days, the majority of Frankfurt Stock Exchange buy and sell orders are executed via XETRA, the electronic trading platform. Even so, almost all shares listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange are also tradable on the floor of the exchange by specialists called lead brokers, and commonly referred to as market makers. Each Frankfurt Stock Exchange traded stock has its own lead broker/market maker that is responsible for the stocks quote as well as for calculating the actual execution prices. The quotes are non-binding and are to serve as an orientation for the market. There is only one lead broker/market maker per stock. The lead broker compiles all buy and sell orders in the ‘order book’. These orders in the order book serve as the basis for the quote.
