The Peruvian Minister of Economy and Finance Alfredo Thorne participated in the opening of Nasdaq Stock Exchange together with a Peruvian delegation formed by business organisations and financial institutions from Peru.
Nasdaq is the second largest exchange in the world by market capitalization, behind only the New York Stock Exchange. The development of Peru's capital markets continues apace, driven by the growing number of sophisticated local and international institutional investors. The long term political economic policies and stability are the main reasons to attract investors to the country.
Minister Alfredo Thorne participated in the opening of Nasdaq Stock Exchange together with Mr. Julio Velarde, Governor of the Central Bank of Peru and Mr. Francis Stenning, Chairman of inPERU and CEO at Lima Stock Exchange (BVL) as well as with a Peruvian delegation formed by renown business organisations and financial institutions from Peru.
Francis Stenning, inPERU Chairman states that: "It was an honour for us to participate in the opening of Nasdaq, one of the most important Stock Exchanges in the world. The US is a key market for Peru at investment and business levels. Our visit to New York represents a great opportunity to show once again to the local investment community Peru's interest in further develop business relations with them. There is a clear appetite for investments in Peru and we look forward to working with American investors in strengthening our business relations".
This event was followed by a series of meetings with local investors when Minister Thorne and the delegation presented the positive economic climate in Peru, the potential of the country and the diversified investment opportunities for US investors.
The Road Show to New York organised by the inPERU with the support of PROMPERU, was preceded by a Road Show to Toronto, Canada which included the opening of the Toronto Stock Exchange on 29th May. A successful seminar about investment opportunities took place on the same day, attended by local investors, and this was followed by one to one meetings between the Peruvian delegation and Canadian businessmen.
