On the stock exchange , painting by Ferdinand Brütt , 1888

In 1841 a grain market was set up in Düsseldorf , from which a central trading exchange developed in 1853. For this exchange, guidelines for goods and values ​​were drawn up in 1865. On January 18, 1875, the first Düsseldorf stock exchange meeting took place in the knight's hall of the Tonhalle . In 1884 the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange was placed under the supervision of the Royal Government of Düsseldorf . In the same year, the "State Recognized Stock Exchange in Düsseldorf" received stock exchange regulations. The office of government commissioner for the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange was held by the banker Christian Trinkaus (* 1843), son of the founder of Bankhaus Trinkaus , as the chairman of the stock exchange at the time. In 1890, the stock exchange meeting took place every first and third Thursday in the Hotel Heck on Blumenstrasse 16. If any Thursday fell on a public holiday, the meeting was held on the following Friday. In 1905 the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange entered into an alliance with the Essen Stock Exchange . Around 1906 the stock exchange was relocated to the Rheinhof hall on Breite Strasse at the corner of Benrather Strasse, as the number of daily visitors had increased to around 300 people.

Exchange trading was stopped during the First World War . In 1924 the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange moved to the Wilhelm-Marx-Haus . On July 13, 1931, the stock exchange closed for seven weeks due to the German banking crisis . On January 1, 1935, by decree of the Reich Economics Minister Hjalmar Schacht, the Essen and Cologne stock exchanges were combined with the Düsseldorf stock exchange to form the Rheinisch-Westfälische Börse . Düsseldorf became the seat of this institute. During the Second World War , the Rheinisch-Westfälische Börse was under the influence of war financing . A British air raid on June 12, 1943 destroyed the stock exchange rooms of the Wilhelm-Marx-Haus. This brought the stock exchange business to a standstill; on July 9, it was resumed at the Deutsche Bank Düsseldorf office. Shortly before the US armed forces marched in, the stock exchange closed on April 16, 1945. After the British military government had approved the resumption of trading, trading on the Rheinisch-Westfälische Börse was resumed on April 15, 1946 in the casino of the Commerzbank Düsseldorf. In the course of the currency reform in 1948 , new exchange regulations came into force on July 17, 1948. In mid-October 1948, a board of directors was elected, which was chaired by the banker Kurt Forberg (1900–1979). In February 1949, the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange moved to the Königsallee 2-4 building . There it resumed official trading in May 1949 and soon developed into the German stock exchange with the highest turnover. On April 17, 1951, the stock exchange business could be relocated to the rebuilt premises of the Wilhelm-Marx-Haus. In addition to Berlin, Hamburg and Munich, the Düsseldorf stock exchange opened its foreign exchange trading in 1953 . In 1973 the Düsseldorf stock exchange combined a market share of 35 percent of the securities business traded on the stock exchange. In August 2000, the stock exchange moved to the Immermannstrasse 14-16 building as an alternative location, while the Ernst-Schneider-Platz building was rebuilt and rebuilt. On January 1, 2001, the carrier company of the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange became the Rheinisch-Westfälische Börse zu Düsseldorf e. V. transferred to Börse Düsseldorf AG . In 2004, the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange returned to a new stock exchange building on Ernst-Schneider-Platz.

After the start of the operational cooperation between BÖAG Börsen AG and the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange with effect from January 1, 2017, all formal requirements for a merger were completed in the following months, including the signing of the notarized purchase agreement on March 24, 2017 On November 23, 2017, BÖAG Börsen AG announced that the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange is now the third stock exchange in its sponsorship alongside the stock exchanges in Hamburg and Hanover .
