Börse Frankfurt: trading for a good cause

1 December 2015

Deutsche Börse and specialists to donate fees to charities Frankfurter Tafel and Bärenherz Stiftung on 8 December

Deutsche Börse AG and the specialists active on the Frankfurt trading floor will be donating trading and transaction fees generated via the Börse Frankfurt venue on 8 December. The exchange operator and the eleven companies acting as specialists are holding the “Trading Charity – Handeln und Helfen” event in support of two local charities, the “Frankfurter Tafel” food bank and children's hospice organisation Bärenherz Stiftung.

Investors trading equities, bonds, funds, ETFs or exchange traded products on Börse Frankfurt on this day will be helping both organisations. The specialists will donate their trading fees to Bärenherz Stiftung in Wiesbaden, which supports projects and institutions for terminally ill children. Deutsche Börse will donate its trading proceeds to Frankfurter Tafel, an organisation which distributes food to needy families and individuals in the Rhine-Main area.

Michael Krogmann, member of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange Management Board, said, “We are pleased to sponsor two local charities, Frankfurter Tafel and Bärenherz Stiftung, which play important roles in our society and provide assistance to a large number of people in their daily lives. We would like to also recognise the work of the many volunteers with our donation.”
