Munich companies in the four German stock indexes

The Deutsche Aktienindex (DAX) is Germany’s most important stock index. It consists of the country’s 40 largest companies in terms of order book volume and market capitalization that are trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Nine of the 40 DAX-listed companies have their headquarters in Bavaria, and seven of these are in Munich and the surrounding region:

  • BMW AG (Munich)
  • Infineon Technologies AG (Neubiberg)
  • MTU Aero Engines AG (Munich)

These companies make Munich the leading DAX city, ahead of Stuttgart (4), Düsseldorf (3), Frankfurt am Main, Bonn and Leverkusen (each of which have 2).

The MDAX lists the 50 companies that rank in size immediately below those included in the DAX index. Company size is calculated based on a combination of order book volume and market capitalization.

Munich is also Germany’s leading city when it comes to the SDAX, ahead of Frankfurt am Main, Berlin, and Dortmund (each of which have 4), and Stuttgart (3).

The TecDAX tracks the performance of the 30 largest German companies from the technology sector.

Following a regulation change in 2018, tech companies can be listed in both the TecDAX and the DAX40, MDAX or SDAX.
