Nicaragua: Stock Market Activity Up 11%

Between January and November, transactions on the Stock Exchange totaled $1.562 billion, accumulating an 11% growth compared to the same period in 2016.

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Gerardo Argüello, general manager of the National Securities Exchange (BVN), told that "... growth in the stock market is widespread, but he admits that the issues by the Central Bank of Nicaragua and the public sector have encouraged this dynamism in the stock market."

"... In the secondary market, where buyers and sellers can negotiate directly to acquire securities that are already in circulation, movements accounted for 6.04 percent of the total market with 2,726 million córdobas, surpassing the 4.21% that it represented in the same period last year."

Private sector participation gained ground in the stock market between January and November, with 4.50 percent of total emissions, exceeding the 3.68 percent that it represented in the same period last year."
