Vienna Stock Exchange
The only stock exchange in Austria and one of the largest in eastern Europe. Established in 1771 as a forum for selling state bonds, it is now responsible for approximately 60% of Austria's stock trade, with the remaining 40% being over-the-counter. Stocks, bonds, options, and futures trade on the Vienna Stock Exchange; all trading occurs electronically. It serves as the primary sponsor for other exchanges in eastern Europe, notably the Zagreb Stock Exchange and the Budapest Stock Exchange.
