DCSX fully operational

Willemstad, Curacao, 12-17-2010

The trading system provides multi-asset class electronic trading and order matching software for brokers and investors. Santine expects that the trading platform will enable the DCSX to stimulate its growth as a securities exchange in the region. “This will strengthen the local financial sector,” says Luis Santine.

In the mean time interest in the DCSX has been growing day by day, says Santine. “Not only local companies increasingly show interest,” says Santine. “We also get more inquiries about the DCSX from the United States, Latin America and even China.”

Another positive development is the fact that the Central Bank of Curacao and St. Maarten and the local government have adopted a sympathetic attitude towards the idea of listing government bonds on the DCSX. “We recently conducted talks with the Central Bank, but also with the Minister of Finance, George Jamaloodin, and the Minister of Economic Affairs, Abdul Nasser El Hakim. These talks show receptiveness to the idea of listing government bonds on our exchange. As DCSX we could then create a secondary market through the Brokers”.

Maduro & Curiel’s Bank has recently affiliated with the DCSX as a listing adviser, making the number of new Listing Advisers (LAD’s) 13. Membership is now 12, of which 5 will first operate as brokers. Recently also the ‘Stichting Logistieke Sector’ confirmed its support in the form of 3 memberships. This confirms the importance of DCSX not only for the financial sector, but for the economy as a whole.

The DCSX will receive additional local and international fund and equity listings in the next couple of months. There are now various local initiatives for the creation of a ‘venture capital fund’ and a ‘real estate fund’. There are also some actual listings which are soon to file an application for a listing.

The DCSX provides a time-saving and cost-efficient listing and trading facility for international and local corporations and investment funds. For more information on the DCSX, please visit the website www.dcsx.an.
