Our History

The Buttonwood Agreement

The Buttonwood Agreement is the founding document of what is now the New York Stock Exchange and is one of the most important financial documents in U.S. history. The agreement organized securities trading in New York City. It was signed under the shade of a buttonwood tree, outside of 68 Wall Street by 24 stockbrokers on May 17, 1792
