Why a Stock Market Certificate?

Why a stock exchange

Although many companies assume a profound knowledge of the financial systems and often encounter such topics in their daily lives, the subject of the stock exchange and the functioning of the capital market is often not dealt with enough in education.

For this reason, the BVH has set itself the goal of providing its members with a sound knowledge of these complex topics. Whether for private reasons, to analyse possible investment opportunities or for professional reasons, in order to lay the first foundations for a career in banking or the financing and investment industry.

The BVH Stock Exchange licence is more than just an introduction to the world of stock exchange topics: it is intended to lay the foundation for a deeper understanding of the capital market as an interesting and complex subject for all graduates. Interested parties can either attend the lectures at their local finance associations or attend a digital webinar.

After successfully passing the subsequent test, the acquired knowledge is certified with a nationwide uniform certificate.


The stock market certificate is divided into 4 basic seminars followed by a test for the official certificate. Alternatively, the stock market certificate can be extended by 2 seminars.

The Stock Market Certificate Webinar

The Stock Market Certificate Webinar

No finance association nearby?  Then you also have the opportunity to obtain your stock exchange driving licence from the comfort of your own couch. The BVH Stock Market Certificate Webinars are more than just an introduction to the world of stock exchange topics. For all participants, they should lay the foundation for a deeper understanding of the equally interesting and complex subject of capital markets.

The BVH Stock Market Certificate has been offered as a attendance event by stock exchange associations at universities since 2009 and can also be completed free of charge as a webinar with experienced speakers from the BVH. Following the four webinars, a multiple choice online examination can be taken in order to obtain the BVH Stock Market Certificate.

Der Börsenführerschein ist in 4 Grundlagenseminaren mit anschließendem Test für das offizielle Zertifikat gegliedert. Ein Vertiefungsmodul mit vier weiteren Einheiten ist in Arbeit und wird Ende 2020 erstmals angeboten werden können. Weitere Infos erfolgen auf unseren Social Media Kanälen und im Newsletter.

Events on the global capital markets are very complex. It is reported daily and large numbers are thrown into the room. Economic systems, crises and upheavals are explained and yet many do not have an overview of the big picture.

Unfortunately, the subject of the stock market and the functioning of the capital market is often neglected in school education. For this reason, the BVH has set itself the goal of closing this knowledge gap and providing the general public with capital market knowledge in a simple but well-founded way by means of the BVH Stock Market Certificate.
