Designated Sponsoring / Market Making

As Designated Sponsor and Market Maker, ACON Actienbank has the task of ensuring the liquidity of its clients' shares and increasing them in accordance with the rules and regulations of Deutsche Börse AG in Frankfurt. Through a proactive approach that goes beyond the minimum requirements of the stock exchange, ACON Actienbank not only provides increased liquidity in the respective shares, but also contributes to the efficiency of trading by reducing the liquidity discount in the share price and finally to lower capital costs of the traded company.

  • Increased liquidity through continued commitment and manual allocation
  • Improvement of order book quality and reduction of excessive volatility
  • Reduction of the price markdown by increasing liquidity


Reduction of capital costs and creation of financial leeway
