The tendencies in the development of the Bulgarian economy in the last years made the Exchange more visible to the business community and also more clearly recognized as an efficient funding and development option.
The positive effects of the disclosure of information by the public companies become more tangible and translate in wide media presence and strong interest by the investment community.
Attracting new issuers is one of the main priorities of BSE-Sofia. The Exchange offers all current and potential issuers the opportunity to be traded at one of the most dynamically developing markets in the region of Southeastern Europe, becoming visible to both national and international investors.
Through the new trading system XETRA more than 600 investment intermediaries and banks and more than 5000 brokers are able to get an access to the Bulgarian market. This substantially widens the circle of investors to whom the Bulgarian listed companies have the opportunity to present their business.
The entities, eligible for membership in the BSE-Sofia, are local investment intermediaries and banks, or such seated in European Union member countries, which have been licensed within the terms and procedures of the Markets of Financial Instruments Act (MFIA) to provide investment services and perform investment activities, and are admitted to trade financial instruments on BSE-Sofia.
In an effort to facilitate the access of potential members, the Rules and Regulations of BSE-Sofia allow for an associated membership which does not require the possession of BSE's shares. Associated and regular members are entitled to equal access to market information, equal conditions for participation in exchange trading and equal liabilities.
The newly implemented XETRA system allows BSE-Sofia members to trade on one of the most technically advanced and modern trading system worldwide. The system has a wide range of functionalities and variety of different order types.
