Long Description:

"Beursplein 5 viert het 100-jarig bestaan. Het pand aan Beursplein 5 is speciaal ontworpen voor de effectenhandel. Tot 1913 maakten de effectenhandelaren gebruik van de “Beurs van Berlage” aan het Beursplein. Architect van Beursplein 5 was Jos Cuypers, zoon van de beroemde architect die o.a. het Rijksmuseum ontwierp. De geschiedenis van het Amsterdamse Beurswezen is natuurlijk veel ouder. De Amsterdamse Effectenbeurs is de oudste financiële handelsbeurs ter wereld. Al in 1611 werd in Amsterdam een door Hendrick de Keyser ontworpen beurs gebouwd."
