Founded in 1998, OnVista announced its IPO in 2000 at Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The issuance of OnVista shares was 80 times oversubscribed. After a trade sale to the French online broker Boursorama S.A. in 2007, the German Comdirect Bank AG acquired OnVista Group in 2016.

 

“As one of the early digital pioneers, OnVista is an impressive example of how providing necessary information can not only be turned into an IPO, but also into a nine-figure success story.”
