Stock market enthusiast, investors, entrepreneurs, professionals, those in the academe, anybody interested in investing in the Philippine stock market and Warren Buffett wannabes, brace yourselves, the Philippine stock exchange will be in Cebu soon !
No, the PSE is not building a stock exhange in Cebu, rather they will be having a “Road show” on June 22, 2009 at the WaterFront hotel. There will also be a similar activity at Leyte, to be held at Tacloban City’s Leyte Park Hotel on June 24, 2009. Both activities will start at 1 p.m. and end at 5 p.m.
This road show is part of the PSE’s investors education program. As I have mentioned in the post entitled “Newbie’s questions to investing in the Philippine stock market” only less than 1 % of the Philippine population is involved in investing Philippine stock market making our stock market one of the smallest in the world. The road show also aims to promote the stock market as an effective avenue for businesses to raise capital. There will be seminars on investing in the stock market, exhibits, investment consultation and sessions with stock market practitioners.
The schedule for the afternoon even will be as follows:
1:00 – 1:30 p.m. – Registration
