We can say without a single doubt that today is a super exciting Thursday! Why?
We just came back much energized from the Amsterdam Stock Exchange, where we were thrilled and honored to open the trading day together with our great partner, ING.
Following our partnership with ING, we have been invited by Euronext to celebrate this exciting milestone by sounding the gong at the Stock Exchange in Amsterdam.
This beautiful tradition goes back many centuries and is considered a major moment for the honored guests that are invited to participate. In Amsterdam, a gong is sounded at 9AM by the designated guests to mark the opening of every trading day. Recent guests have included government ministers, state secretaries, industry leaders, famous sports and television personalities, charity ambassadors and other prominent organizations.
Today, the 8th of February, it was our turn as honored guests at the Dutch Stock Exchange, celebrating our amazing step forward with ING. Our CEO, Rudolf Booker, together with Mark Buitenhek, ING’s Global Head of Transaction Services, officially opened the trading day.
Rudolf shared his thoughts about the day:
I’m happy and honored to have had the opportunity to open the trading day at the Amsterdam Stock Exchange today together with our great partner, ING. This symbolizes the market’s acknowledgement of our valuable partnership, and marks the beginning of a wonderful journey into enhanced business growth and innovation in payments.
We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this major achievement in our payments story. It is indeed an amazing start to the wonderful journey that awaits us and our partner, ING. The best is yet to come!
