Numerous companies listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange are world market leaders in their industries. They have much to offer for national and international investors.

  • At 3.14% of GDP, Austria has the second highest R&D ratio in Europe
  • High degree of digitalization and innovation
  • Access to the fastest growing region in Europe through investments and subsidiaries
