KAS BANK opens trading day on Euronext Amsterdam


At the invitation of NYSE Euronext and in honour of its Custodian of the Year Award, KAS BANK opened the Euronext Amsterdam trading day today at 09:00 sharp. The KAS BANK delegation that performed the ceremony was accompanied by a number of delegates of our clients.


Gong ceremony
The Amsterdam Stock Exchange is the oldest exchange in the world. This is one reason the exchange is a household name at home and abroad. Since 2007 the Amsterdam Stock Exchange merged with the world's largest stock exchange: NYSE Euronext. Sounding a gong to open the trading session was an old tradition, happily restored a few years ago. Thus like the New York bell, the Amsterdam gong has grown into a much appreciated ceremony.
