Further to our Newsflash from 14 February 2024, the Austrian Government Bonds are now available for trading as part of the continuous auction of the Vienna Stock Exchange (VSE). Trading occurs between 09:15 and 16:30 on trading days as per the trading calendar of the VSE. Two local market makers will ensure continuous liquidity.

Switching to the trading model continuous auctions offers more attractive trading conditions compared to the previous process. So far, prices for Austrian government bonds were determined once a day and without market makers. Thus, the new trading procedure enables more transparency and a pricing closer to the market. Currently, continuous auction applies to 33 Austrian government bonds with a volume of more than EUR 300 billion. Among them, there are also two green government bonds and are listed in the Vienna ESG Segment. These funds support projects in areas such as climate change and environmentally relevant activities.
