Lahore SE Future Outlook 2008

Wednesday, 30 January 2008

With the advent of technology, now around 49 % of the trading volume is being generated through remote trading terminals. It is also because of technology that the LSE was able to establish its trading floors in other cities as well. Lahore Stock Exchange has Trading Floors in cities of Faisalabad and Sialkot and is now considering opening trading floors in Multan and Peshawar as well.

Introduction of Index Trading and derivatives products such as Options and Swaps and other products will increase the products offered by the exchange, giving investors more choices and hence increasing trading activity of the exchange.

Integration of the exchanges is also being considered and is likely after demutualization.

Another concept that will help greatly in expanding investor base is cross listings and GDRs. Work is underway in this regard.
