For this occasion, Mr Aleš Ipavec, President of the Management Board of the Ljubljana Stock Exchange, stated, “We are very pleased to have joined forces with the Zagreb Stock Exchange to also promote listed companies in Slovenia, as in this way we exploit synergies and offer investors easier access to the companies of both markets. Investors' interest in this year's conference has shown us that our decision was right, as the number of investors this year is very high, and the conference is truly a success. The exchanges cooperate also in other areas of market promotion and development and we have already seen positive outcomes from our joint efforts, such as greater visibility of our markets and higher interest of international investors, new markets catering to the needs of small and medium sized enterprises and much more. We believe that we can raise the bar on possible collaboration even higher and we are really looking forward to what the future holds.”
Mrs. Ivana Gažić, President of the Management Board of the Zagreb Stock Exchange, further added, “Zagreb and Ljubljana Stock Exchanges are continuously working on expanding communication channels between companies and investors. With this winter edition of our joint investor day, we have provided both companies and investors another platform for meeting and exchanging information and we will continue to work together to support open dialogue between companies and investors.”.
The main goal of the event is to facilitate the access of Slovenian and Croatian listed companies to local and international investors and thus strengthen their visibility and liquidity.
The Zagreb and Ljubljana Stock Exchanges will continue with individual and joint activities to increase investor interest and to further strengthen the existing trust of local as well as international investors.
