In 1903, the Stock Exchange started using the Effectenbeurszaal. From that moment on, shares and bonds were traded daily. In 1912, the Stock Exchange received its own premises next to the Beurs van Berlage at Beursplein 5. The hall then served as the currency exchange and giro office of Amsterdam. From 1985 to 2013, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra used the Graanbeurszaal and Effectenbeurszaal. The Effectenbeurszaal was rebuilt into a concert hall and was acoustically improved for the ultimate concert experience.
