CEE Stock Exchange Group, also known as CEESEG, is the central holding company in charge of strategic and financial management for its four regional European exchanges: Budapest, Ljubljana, Prague and Vienna. CEESEG is the byproduct of Wiener Borse AG’s regional operational expansion via acquisition. It is the largest exchange group in Central and Eastern Europe.

CEE Stock Exchange Group ranked 44th in global derivative exchange volume in 2017 with 7.0 million contracts traded, down 10.1 percent from 7.8 million contracts a year earlier, according to the FIA Annual Volume Survey.[1]


Wiener Borse AG (est. 1771) operates the Vienna Stock exchange, and in 2004 partnered with an Austrian banking consortium to buy a majority stake in the Budapest Stock Exchange. In 2008, Wiener Borse AG acquired majority stakes in Ljubljana’s and Prague’s stock exchanges, thus solidifying it’s status as the largest exchange presence is eastern Europe. In 2009, the newly minted Central and Eastern Europe Stock Exchange Group was launched.[2]

Under CEESEG’s current structure, all four stock exchanges hold equal positions as subsidiaries and are responsible for the management of their own business operations.
