Fee system

Boerse Stuttgart’s fee system

Boerse Stuttgart’s transaction fee model for all asset classes conforms to the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID). This means that even before investors place an order, they can see what fee will be incurred for the execution of the order.

The transaction fee consists of a fixed and a variable component. The fixed component does not apply to funds, ETPs and securitised derivatives. For securitised derivatives and subscription there is a cap on the variable transaction fee.

Partial executions of an order on the same day are regarded as one executed order. This means that no additional transaction fees are incurred for these partial executions.

The transaction fees for the individual asset classes are as follows (all fees are subject to VAT at 19 percent):
