“We notice an increased interest for the so-called growth companies listed on the AeRO segment of BVB, but also for companies with a solid history listed on the regulated market.

”The year 2021 started in a strongly optimistic note for the Bucharest Stock Exchange. This is the cumulative result, on the one hand, of BVB’s constant efforts to promote itself as an essential pillar of financing and, on the other hand, of a better understanding and confidence among to the shareholders of the Romanian companies that notice the multiple opportunities offered by the presence on the stock exchange,” said Radu Hanga, the president of the Board of Directors of the Bucharest Stock Exchange, according to Agerpres.
