Key People[edit]

History[edit]

Trading of corporate shares originated in Amsterdam in 1607 when the giant shipping company ‘Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie’ needed to finance the transport of goods from the Far East. Shares in this company were the first immediately-deliverable shares traded in the world. Those were quickly followed by the first futures and options. By the end of the 17th century, the stock exchange had a permanent place at the heart of the financial sector.
