Debt Listing: FAQ – Listing Debt Securities on Vienna MTF
- How long does it take to list debt securities?
Typically a listing can be achieved within a week of the initial submission for review. We reply within a maximum of 2 days for the first review and 1 day for subsequent reviews. Once you have a review without comments, you can submit the final documents. If these are received by 11 AM CET, approval will be granted on the same day. Trading can then commence 2 trading days later.
- Are there different requirements when listing in the Qualified Investor (QI) Segment?
No, the listing requirements are the same as when listing outside the QI Segment. For more information please visit the relevant section.

- What is the delisting process?
A security is automatically delisted upon maturity. If there is a full early redemption, all you need to do is notify us of this fact and the date with which the redemption happened. If there is no redemption (or a partial redemption), then in this case delisting will be subject to a fee. Please contact our client services team regarding how to proceed.
