Euronext traces its origins back to the world's first bourses, formed in the Low Countries' shifting trade centres: Bruge, Antwerp and Amsterdam in 1285, 1485 and 1602, respectively. In its present form, Euronext was founded by the merger of European Union (EU) stock exchanges at the turn of the 21st century, following the introduction of the single currency and harmonisation of financial markets.
