VIDEO | In terms of its 128 listings, the Amsterdam stock exchange is a fairly small player on the European map – though its 1.4-trillion-euro market capitalisation puts it above most others on that other score. Lining out the current positve and negative trends in the Dutch securities market, Euronext head of listing René van Vlerken gave the opening keynote of PostTrade 360° Amsterdam on Thursday morning. Beside its reputation as business friendly, he pointed to crucial importance in the post-trade capabilities when corporates decide where to list.

The session was sponsored by Euronext.

With its strategy to consolidate European trading – underpinned by clearing and settlement on as-big-as-possible a scale, too – the Euronext group emphasises the value of the post-trade “plumbing” when it comes to attracting issuers and investors to the marketplace. On Thursday, René van Vlerken shared a detailed look into the strategies and current data at his own venue, the Amsterdam stock exchange.

The Amsterdam exchange only hosts a regulated market, no MTF. For the small and medium-sized enterprises which make up an important part of new listers, this means a high threshold – though many who take the step end up doing well. Against this, there is a trend of de-listings as private owning formats have grown among many large investors.
