FEAS 15 Years

Friday, 21 May 2010

The Federation of Euro-Asian Stock Exchanges (FEAS) was established on 16 May 1995 with 12 founding members; currently there are 33 members and 12 affiliate members, including both post trade institutions and dealers associations.

Membership in the Federation is open to emerging stock exchanges in Europe and Asia. Until the year 2011 the position of President and Vice President will be held by the Istanbul Stock Exchange and Muscat Securities Market.

The Governing Body of FEAS is the General Assembly, comprised of all 33 members, which meets once annually in a member country. The Executive Committee, comprised of 12 members, is responsible for the development of Federation policies, making major administrative decisions, as mandated by the General Assembly, approving the content and scope of tasks assigned to the Working Committee and making recommendations to the General Assembly.

In 1995, the Istanbul Stock Exchange, represented by the late Mr. Tuncay ARTUN, Chairman and CEO, was elected President and the Amman Stock Exchange, represented by the retired Chairman, Mr. Walid ASFOUR, was elected Vice President of FEAS. The position of Secretary General is appointed and is currently held by Mr. Aril SEREN, who was appointed in 1995. The Founding members also selected Istanbul, Turkey as the headquarters for the Federation’s Secretariat, or administrative offices.

During the 1st Annual General Assembly, held between October 2-3 1995 in Istanbul, Turkey, the members adopted a mission and a 5-year strategic plan (revised 2009), outlining the goals and objectives of the Federation, currently until the year 2014.
