“In 2021, Euronext confirmed its position as the leading European market infrastructure, thanks to Borsa Italiana joining the Group in April 2021, and benefiting from post-Brexit conditions.”

Euronext is celebrating 2021 as a record year for its primary markets, with 212 new equity listings, representing an aggregated market capitalization of €123 billion, and raising €26 billion in new capital.

Euronext is home to 1,959 listed equity issuers, worth €6.9 trillion in all, making it the largest stock market operator in Europe in terms of aggregated market capitalization as 25% of the shares traded are exchanged on the many Euronext markets: Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, Oslo, Milan, and Paris.

Stéphane Boujnah, CEO and Chairman of the Managing Board of Euronext N.V. said: “Euronext is the largest equity listing venue in Europe, combining the strengths and dynamism of its exchanges, united by its unique single liquidity pool.

“In 2021, Euronext confirmed its position as the leading European market infrastructure, thanks to Borsa Italiana joining the Group in April 2021, and benefiting from post-Brexit conditions. The record number of listings demonstrated Euronext’s commitment to its mission to support clients in financing their strategic investment and development projects through its transparent and efficient markets across Europe”.
