Armenian Securities Exchange names best participants of capital market in 2018

YEREVAN, March 26. /ARKA/. On March 25, the Armenian Securities Exchange (AMX) named the best participants of the local capital market in 2018. According to AMX CEO Hayk Yeganyan, the purpose of the event is to assist capital market participants and thereby stimulate market activity.

‘We are promoting companies that are active at different exchanges. The competition between participants of the exchange enhances trade,” he said.

He said the change of winners indicates the activity of the participants and the emergence of new ones.
“Every year we register almost a 50% growth in the number of transactions with corporate bond. Every year we conduct 35 new bond issues. This suggests that companies demand for borrowed funds from the capital market is growing,” said Yeganyan.

ArmSwissbank was named the winner in the category The Best Participant in the Corporate Securities Market. Ameriabank was the winner in the category The Best Participant in the Government Bonds Market, and the investment company Armenbrok was the Best Participant in Repo Transactions. Armenbrok also became the Best Partner of the Year. Araratbank was the winner in the category The Participant of the Year.
