This German Fintech May Soon Be More Valuable Than Deutsche Bank

Wirecard is hovering close to a record 158.10 euros in Frankfurt, with shares gaining for a 13th day, marking its longest rising streak since an initial public offering in October 2000. Its 19.4 billion-euro ($22.5 billion) market valuation, just 470 million euros shy of Deutsche Bank’s, also makes it a candidate to join Germany’s DAX benchmark index of the 30 largest companies as early as September, when Deutsche Boerse AG conducts its regular index review.
