Bourse showcases future plans

MANAMA: Bahrain Bourse in collaboration with HSBC held a virtual roadshow with the participation from a number of regional and international financial institutions and investment banks.

The virtual roadshow provided Bahrain Bourse the opportunity to showcase its key developments and plans to international clients.

Topics discussed included the enhancement of the Delivery vs Payment Model 2 and enhanced Corporate Actions, ESG Guidelines being developed in Bahrain, and the establishment of the Amanat Investor Protection Fund.

The speakers included BHB chief operating officer Narjes Jamal, director of listing and disclosure Shaikha Al Zayani, director of marketing and business development Marwa Almaskati and Bahrain Clear senior director of operations Abdulla Abdin.

Ms Jamal said: “Last year, Bahrain Bourse embarked on an ambitious regional and international roadshow with the aim of attracting international fund managers. This virtual roadshow seeks to build on this initiative by engaging with regional and international financial institutions and investment banks and showcasing Bahrain Bourse’s recent market developments and plans in the pipeline.”

“The pandemic has forced many organisations to fully embrace digital transformation, including the way we connect and communicate with our investors. Whilst Covid-19 restrictions have posed logistical challenges to many events, it has also enabled organisations to creatively come up with alternative virtual formats for corporate access days and roadshows.”

HSBC in Bahrain head of securities services Malti Javeri said, “We continue to work closely with the Bahrain Bourse to create opportunities to connect with international fund managers and investors across our global network. Our international reach and relationships with teams in key markets offer a wider reach to international investors.”
