Boosting the liquidity of the regional order-routing platform SEE Link, expanding the platforms network with new stock exchanges and brokers, addressing the problems of international clearing and settlement are amongst the main topics of discussion at the SEE Link International Conference 2017, held in Belgrade. The conference was attended by more than 70 participants from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia.
The market capitalisation of SEE LINK today exceeds 38,5 billion dollars, which proves that the pioneering efforts of creating a joint trading platform of the Ljubljana, Zagreb, Belgrade, Skopje and Sofia stock exchanges have a bright future ahead, said Ivan Takev, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of SEE Link and the CEO of the Bulgarian Stock Exchange Sofia welcoming the participants of the Conference.
After the bulk of technical and institutional obstacles have been overcome, promotional activities such as this SEE LINK conference help build visibility for the platform and its future.
Participants of the roundtable agreed that it is necessary to solve some side issues in order for the platform to reach its full potential. The moderator Ivana Gazic, President of the MB of Zagreb Stock Exchange, concluded that this is a long process which takes a lot of efforts from all the capital markets participants.
The participants of the SEE Link conference have agreed that even though the stock markets aren't connected through joint ownership, they have managed with the support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, to create a sustainable order-routing platform whose significance for the economies of the member countries and the listed companies will soon be apparent.
