Bahrain Bourse marks World Investor Week

MANAMA: Bahrain Bourse (BHB) virtually rang the market-opening bell for financial literacy joining over 35 other global exchanges to mark the fourth annual World Investor Week (WIW).

The bell-ringing event, which is a global initiative by the International Organisation of Securities Commission (IOSCO) and the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE), brings together stakeholders to celebrate the progress that has been made and to partner on the road ahead.

The WIW is a week-long global campaign promoted by IOSCO to raise awareness of the importance of investor education and protection and highlight the various initiatives of securities regulators in these two critical areas.

Bahrain Bourse chief executive Shaikh Khalifa bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa said, “BHB’s participation in the WIW demonstrates its ongoing commitment towards enhancing market literacy and investor awareness in collaboration with local, regional, and international organisations.

“Despite the Covid-19 pandemic and given the restrictions imposed on events, our activities focused on the production of educational content for its various programmes, investor awareness content, and offered a focused virtual seminar session on the fundamentals of saving and investing, which was open to the public.”

The WIW event concluded yesterday.
