Services Bilbao Stock Exchange

The evolution observed on the stock markets as of late, obliges Stock Exchanges to go beyond the traditional role they have played exclusively as trading centres. They have to become genuine service companies whose objective is to satisfy their clients' and users' needs by offering value added services.

Since it was founded, the Bolsa de Bilbao has followed this line of action and put a lot of effort into this approach. This has given rise to an extensive range of permanently updated and improved services.
