Educational visits

The Athens Exchange Group is active in providing education about the market and its operation. For this reason it accepts groups of students who are interested in learning more about how capital markets operate.

These visits are for groups of high school (from 10th grade and up, ages 16 and up), and college students; the size of the group can be anywhere from 5 to 150 persons. The duration of the visit is approximately 2 hours, including 1 or 2 short breaks. No tour of the Exchange is available (the trading floor was shut down in 2001).

The presentation can take place in Greek or English.

The format of the presentation is indicatively the following:

1. The exchange in action

Presentation of the market and its operation (how the market opens, how trades are made, market close, auctions et al), using an application (Inbroker) that allows us to follow trading in real time during market hours (10:30-17:00).

In order to discuss and see the opening of the market, it is recommended that groups arrive at the exchange at approximately 10:00 to 10:15.


2. The Exchange - what it is and how it works: 

  • Introduction to capital market concepts - the corporation, investments, cash flows, liquidity, capital raising et al.
  • Stocks - Bonds - Derivatives
  • History of the Athens Exchange
  • The Athens Exchange in numbers - trading data - comparison with other markets etc.
  • The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) Group

The abovementioned sections are only indicative. The goal of the presentation is to provide stimuli for discussion. It is thus recommended that participants come prepared with questions for discussion.
