Deutsche Börse has an integrated business model. Its product and service portfolio has a broader basis than other exchange organisations as it covers the entire process chain, from the monitored execution of trading orders, clearing, netting and transaction settlement through to post-trade custody of securities as well as the necessary electronic infrastructure and the provision of market information. Deutsche Börse sets standards with its superior risk management and its innovative collateral management to enable customers to effectively use their capital.

Deutsche Börse Group’s commercial activity contributes to private and public income – this contribution is made transparent in the value added statement. Value added is calculated by subtracting depreciation, amortisation and impairment charges and third-party costs from the enterprise performance. In 2016, the value added by Deutsche Börse Group amounted to €1,627.1 million (2015: €1,541.0 million). The breakdown of value added shows that large portions of the revenue generated flow back into the economy: 28 per cent (€454.3 million) benefited shareholders in the form of dividend payments, while 37 per cent (€607.5 million) went to employees in the form of salaries and other remuneration components. Taxes accounted for 18 per cent (€291.8 million), while 4 per cent (€56.8 million) was attributable to lenders. The 13 per cent value added that remained in the company (€216.7 million) is available for investments in growth initiatives, for example.
