The Stock Exchange in Frankfurt is home to more than 250 international trading companies. The Frankfurt Stock Exchange has its own electronic trading platform called Xetra which is used for electronic trading by all foreign and German companies listed on it. One of the major benefits of the German Stock Exchange is that all shares are free trading, no restrictions being imposed.
The Frankfurt Stock Exchange has 4 tiers called segments. These are:

Most German companies apply for being listed on the Entry Standard segment until they qualify for the General or Prime Standard segment.
