The Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE) on Tuesday held an event at which the opening bell was rang to promote financial literacy and boost financial inclusion in response to a call by the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE).
The WFE partnered with the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) to set up the inaugural “Ring the Bell for Financial Literacy” initiative as part of the World Investor Week (WIW) 2019.
Investors and employees of the QSE participated in the activity, which was held on the trading floor of the QSE where Aisha al-Mahmood, director of IT, rang the bell on behalf of QSE.
WIW is a week-long, global campaign to raise awareness about the importance of investor education and protection, and to highlight the various initiatives of securities regulators in these two critical areas.
The WFE invited its members to hold an opening or closing bell ringing ceremony, or a workshop, during WIW 2019 to promote the work they do in their own jurisdictions to improve financial education and literacy.
