"Positive investors’ sentiment was reflected in the number of trading sessions on which the main index of (the Bucharest Exchange Trading, or BET) closed on plus," said BVB CEO Ludwik Sobolewski. "The fact that we had the biggest increase in EU and that we had a higher rate of increase than the biggest market in the region, Poland, it represents a strong signal that investors have in relation with the evolution of the Romanian capital market.”
Sobolewski referred to the main index BET’s 14 percent increase for the beginning of 2017 as the largest market increase in the EU so far this year. The BVB also reported that the BET-TR index grew by 15 percent, hitting a record high of 10,000 points.
"Investor expectations of dividend policy; macroeconomic developments ... and that three companies (already meet) the criteria required by (Morgan Stanley Capital International) shows us that we are on the road on which Romania (increasingly matters) in the region,” said BVB Chairman Lucian Anghel.
