Message from the Chairman

Capital market is the source of long-term financing for the business and industries, way of mobilizing savings to investment, and provider of price discovery and  liquidity generation through organized stock exchanges.

While the primary market directly provides financing to the business and industries, the secondary market keeps continuation of price discovery and liquidity generation for the investors keeping the whole system active. But investors should take investment decision based on proper knowledge, judgment and risk tolerance. Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission is continuing its efforts to develop a more enabled capital market in Bangladesh where investors, businesses and industries, government and all market participants may find it more worthy, and can contribute more significantly to the development of our national economy. We hope all concerned will play their due role towards developing a more vibrant capital market in Bangladesh in the years to come.
