Frankfurt Stock Exchange Bond Trades

Summary: Like all major nations, the German government uses their bond market to raise / borrow money at the best interest rates available. This is a very extensive operation and is carried out on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. We discuss the matter here.

On the Frankfurt Stock Exchange bond trades are a very important part of daily business.

On 1st January 1999, the exchange rate between the Deutschmark and the Euro was fixed at 1.95583. The total amount of domestic government debt was 796.425 billion euros.

German government bonds are known as Bunds and all maturing after 20th January 1999 were changed to be denominated in euros. Figures were rounded to the nearest cent and no cash compensation was made.

Bunds are normally issued with a maturity of up to 10 years, but maturites of up to 30 years do exist, via an auction. Trades are conducted in either an OTC (Over The Counter) or on a German exchange. Frankfurt stock exchange bond trades are the largest in volume.

Bunds are bearer bonds and are quoted in 1/100s of 1 euro. Settlement is T+3. A gross annual coupon is paid.

Settlement is carried out either through an agency called Kassenvereine or via the two eurobond clearing agencies: Euroclear and Clearstream.
