Forum to be held on securities

The Cambodia Securities Exchange (CSX) is to launch a forum to boost public understanding of the securities sector in the Kingdom, according to a press release issued on Monday.

Calling the event the First Listed Company Forum, the CSX will host the gathering in September.

The CSX has previously hosted stock exhibitions, which were also aimed at boosting public awareness of the fledgeling bourse.

Meet the experts

The CSX’s Listing and Disclosure Department director Lamun Soleil on Monday said the forum will allow investors and the public to have direct discussions with experts from each listed company.

“This forum is very important. It is an opportunity for investors and the public to meet with listed companies’ representatives,” he said. “We expect this forum to further expand the scope of Cambodia’s securities market.”

Key topics to be raised include business strategies, potential growth of the sector and the progress of profits across the firms.

Currently there are five companies listed on the CSX, with two more expected to be added this year, including Pestech Cambodia and ASA, a majority shareholder in Acleda Bank.
