The Bermuda Stock Exchange (BSX) announced the launch of its new Investor Education Programme ‘Own your share of Bermuda’.
In making the announcement BSX President & CEO Greg Wojciechowski noted:
As part of the Exchange’s ongoing commitment to the continued development of the domestic capital market the BSX has, in conjunction with other investment industry participants, launched a new Investor Education Programme entitled ‘Own your share of Bermuda’. The programme aims to increase investor awareness, through education and information, with a view to ultimately increasing trade activity across Bermuda’s national stock exchange.
Initially launched as an investor relations campaign in the mid-nineties, Mr. Wojciechowski believes the ‘Own your share of Bermuda’ brand is as relevant today as it was when we first introduced:
I think every Bermudian aspires to own their piece of the rock, and while traditionally that may have meant purchasing real estate, today’s investor has many more options available to them. We believe that given the information needed to make informed decisions, this new generation of investors will see the value in investing in their national capital market.
As part of the programme the BSX will, later this month, be introducing an Investor Education Guide, providing first-time investors with valuable information on how a stock market works, an understanding of the basic terms and principles, as well as a guide to opening a domestic market trading account.
