Panama: Record Figures for Stock Market

Issuances registered between January and September 2016 exceed 60% of the total issuances registered throughout 2015, and projections are that the year will close with $7 billion traded in the local market.

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

The scandal generated from the leaked information about the firm Mossack Fonseca, "Panama Papers", and the questions about the lack of financial transparency that arose afterwards, do not seem to have affected the attractiveness of the stock market for providing finance to companies through the issuance of securities.

Market authorities project that the "... 2016 will mark a record in the Panamanian Securities market. As of September the Superintendency of Securities has registered issues for $4,864,000 and there are pending issues for $1.774 million, making a total of $6,538,000."

"... In the Panama Stock Exchange expectations are that the year will close with $7.000 billion in volume traded in the local market, said the executive vice president and general manager of the company, Olga Cantillo. 'The volume has been the result of new issuers on the capital market and the contribution of the market makers program, through which the government issues its debt'."
