Higher liquidity and improved trading quality.
As Designated Sponsor we act as a liquidity provider for listed shares in our care, thereby ensuring their continuous tradability. In addition to the implicit transaction costs, this also reduces the volatility of the respective shares. In designated sponsoring we work together with our strategic partner Hauck Aufhäuser Lampe, which has been one of the leading providers of designated sponsoring for years, especially for small- and mid-caps, and regularly receives the best rating "AA" from Deutsche Börse AG.
The Designated Sponsoring offer consists mainly of the following services:
Providing extra liquidity in the sponsored shares through active market making
Quoting reasonable bid-ask spreads to ensure fair pricing on XETRA trading
Extensive, individualized monthly DS-reporting
First class advisory on all capital market and index-relevant topics (DAX selection indices)
Daily newsletter covering all capital market relevant developments
