The CEO of SSX, a member and broker of the Dutch Caribbean Securities Exchange (“DCSX”) was invited to share his perspective with the World Exchange Congress on March 24 and the Trading Show on March 26, both events in London, United Kingdom.
At the World Exchange Congress, Mr. Ian Haet shared his perspective on the interaction between crowdfunding and securities exchanges. In attendance were the Chief Executive Officers of securities exchanges from India, Singapore, Maldives, South Africa, Malta, Switzerland, the United States, and many other countries.
“I am amazed that securities exchanges have allowed unregulated and nontransparent platforms to dirty the word, crowdfunding. Investment by a crowd of investors has always occurred on securities exchanges and those markets are the only ones that provide the necessary security, transparency, and liquidity,” said Mr. Haet in his presentation at the World Exchange Congress.
At the Trading Show, Mr. Haet discussed how SSX and the Dutch Caribbean Securities Exchange were opening startup shares as a viable asset class for the traders to participate in. That through SSX and DCSX traders could now buy and sell shares of small businesses and thus opening an entirely new area of trading to these traders.
