Singapore, Dec 3, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Following the successful rollout of the ASEAN Trading Link, the CEOs of ASEAN Exchanges today announced the schedule for Invest ASEAN 2013 roadshow, to promote and create greater awareness of the ASEAN capital market. The announcement was made at the 17th ASEAN Exchanges CEOs meeting hosted by Bursa Malaysia in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.
Organised in collaboration with local broker partners, Invest ASEAN 2013 underscores the collaborative effort and on-going progress of ASEAN Exchanges towards the development of the ASEAN capital market as a highly investable asset class.
Speaking on behalf of the ASEAN Exchanges CEOs, Dato' Tajuddin Atan, Chief Executive Officer, Bursa Malaysia said, "Having recently launched the ASEAN Trading Link to facilitate cross border trading, we are now determined to empower investors with keen knowledge and insights of the ASEAN capital market.
"For a borderless ASEAN capital market to thrive, investors need to be able to make informed decisions about ASEAN markets and stocks. Invest ASEAN 2013 is designed to facilitate this with a goal to increase the pool of regional retail investors who are well-versed and familiar with trading ASEAN stocks just as they are trading stocks in their home market," continued Tajuddin.
SGX CEO Mr Magnus Bocker said, "We are pleased to support the educational initiative as it is an important part of the ASEAN Exchanges' efforts to promote intra-regional investments. Dynamic investment flows in the region will enhance ASEAN's attractiveness as an investable asset class and improve liquidity of the participating stock markets."
Invest ASEAN 2013 will showcase ASEAN Stars, the 30 most exciting companies from each country, provide investors the exclusive access to public listed companies of ASEAN Exchanges, market and sector outlook as well feature a panel discussion amongst analysts on market outlook and stock picks.
Invest ASEAN 2013 is one of the many efforts being undertaken to profile the exciting companies listed on the seven exchanges in ASEAN to mainly retail investors.
Last month, at the World Federation of Exchanges General Assembly and Annual Meeting held in Taipei, the ASEAN Exchanges CEOs unveiled the newly enhanced ASEAN Exchanges website where investors can gain up-to-date information about ASEAN markets and a single, integrated view of the ASEAN market.
The website - www.aseanexchanges.org - allows investors to gain access to aggregated ASEAN market data and analytics, market performance of the seven ASEAN exchanges individually, Broker research reports and FTSE/ASEAN Indices Weekly Report.
The website is built around the ASEAN Stars, the 180 ASEAN blue-chip stocks which represent the 30 most exciting companies of each ASEAN country as ranked by investability in terms of market capitalisation and liquidity.
The seven ASEAN Exchanges have a combined market capitalisation of over USD2.0 trillion and more than 3,000 companies listed on their exchanges. Some of these companies are the largest and most dynamic companies in the world, including leaders in finance and banking, energy, telecommunications, commodities, automotive manufacturing and other industrial sectors.
The Invest ASEAN 2013 investment roadshow will make its debut rollout in three ASEAN cities starting with Bangkok on 12 January 2013 thereafter in Singapore on 02 February 2013 and in Kuala Lumpur on 02 March 2013.
