The Conclusions from 12th International Belgrade Stock Exchange Conference
The results of 12th International Belgrade Stock Exchange Conference “UPGRADE IN BELGRADE 2013”, which was held on 19 November in Belgrade Hyatt hotel, exceeded the expectations of the majority of participants, to a great extent. It is expected that the participation of numerous local and international experts, capital market participants, as well as the managers of the funds managing the assets of over EUR 100 billion, who were, in direct discussions, informed on the operation of local and other listed companies in the region, will result in the implementation of new solutions and opportunities for investment on the local capital market, in the following period.
The participants of “UPGRADE IN BELGRADE 2013” Conference had an opportunity to hear the presentations and present their own positions on the topics of macroeconomic environment, potentials of the integrations of the markets in the region, pension reform outlook in Serbia, and new investment products, as well as alternatives on the local capital market, but also to, together with the top managers of the best companies from Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Macedonia, participate at over 150 individual discussions within 3rd Regional Investor Conference, which was this year organised in cooperation with Wood & Company, one of the leading investment companies in Central Europe.
The third panel “New Products and Investment Alternatives” brought about a long awaited optimism to local capital participants, emphasising the opportunities of overcoming the problems of low turnovers and liquidity by creating new market material, above all, structured products, but, within the same Panel, the requirement for an additional engagement of all of the participants, regulators and financial institutions, to be engaged in the implementation of such operations, was also emphasised. In addition to the experiences in the region, the experiences of German derivative financial instrument market, which is one of the most developed in the world in this field, were presented, too.
