About France's Stock Exchange


As the leading Pan-European marketplace, Euronext’s ambition is to serve the real economy by bringing together buyers and sellers in venues that are transparent, efficient and reliable.

It provides services to regulated equity and derivatives markets in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, and Portugal, as well as to the United Kingdom (derivatives only), and is the leading European stock exchange in terms of shares traded via the central order book.
