Borsa İstanbul’s new international memberships

Tuesday, 5 August 2014

Further the merger of İstanbul Menkul Kıymetler Borsası (İstanbul Stock Exchange) with Turkish Derivatives Exchange and İstanbul Gold Exchange in 2013, international memberships of former institutions were transferred to Borsa İstanbul. Following the renewal process, Borsa İstanbul became a member of Association of Futures Markets (AFM), Futures Industry Association (FIA), World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) and London Bullion Market Association (LBMA). With these memberships, Borsa İstanbul aims to establish and strengthen relations of its derivatives market with other key players in the world and to develop cooperation and business relations with diamond bourses and other institutions having transactions in precious metals.
