The second of Bosnia & Herzegovina's two bourses - the Sarajevo Stock Exchange (SASE) - has enabled trading of securities on the markets of Southeast Europe, becoming an active member of the SEE Link network.

Earlier this year, Bosnia’s other bourse – the Banja Luka Stock Exchange – also joined the network. SASE is the seventh stock exchange in SEE Link so far.

“Today we are one step closer to the coal to set up a regional capital market in Southeast Europe,” SASE’s executive director Tarik Kurbegovic said, according to an August 31 statement from SEE Link. 

“With the connection of the Sarajevo Stock Exchange to SEE Link, we are showing our commitment to make our market more dynamic and more visible for international investors, at the same time providing to investors from our country the possibility to engage in the regional markets.”

So far, the SEE Link network includes the bourses of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Croatia, which founded the network, as well as the stock exchanges of Slovenia and Serbia, which became official members in December 2016.

SEE Link is a project aiming to create a regional infrastructure for the trading of securities listed on the regional markets. It was launched at the end of March last year.

The Athens stock exchange is currently also preparing for to connect to the SEE Link platform, the SEE Link statement said.
