COVID-19 (Corona virus): Continuous operation of the Vienna Stock Exchange is ensured

(Vienna) As a reliable and critical infrastructure provider, the Vienna Stock Exchange takes numerous measures to ensure business continuity. The goal is to fully maintain exchange operations even in turbulent times.

The safety of our employees and customers is our top priority. In accordance with the latest government orders on COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Vienna Stock Exchange ensures ongoing operations via remote access and teleworking. We remain in close contact with our customers, suppliers and regulatory authorities. The service hotlines (phone/email) can be reached without restrictions during business hours.

The Vienna Stock Exchange has postponed its planned events until further notice. Due to the closure of educational institutions, no seminars will be held at the Vienna Stock Exchange Academy (WIFI Vienna) until 15 April 2020 inclusive. Alternative dates for seven seminars will be offered later in spring. For events starting at the end of April 2020, we are in close coordination with the organizers and lecturers. 

The Vienna Stock Exchange will continue to monitor the current situation closely and publish updates as necessary.
