KARACHI: The Central Depository Company of Pakistan Limited (CDC), in partnership with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) and the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE), will stage a Road Show on Investment in the Pakistani Capital Market in Faisalabad on Monday, March 17. The main objectives of the road show is to inform potential investors about the Capital Market’s progress in recent times and how they can also participate and maximize returns on their investment portfolios.
This is in continuation to the series of road shows initiated by CDC starting from Sialkot in 2005 to keep investors abreast on the prospects and opportunities for investment in the growing Pakistani Capital Market. Since then, CDC has successfully staged similar events in Peshawar, Hyderabad, Quetta, Multan and Sukkur.
In September 2006, CDC also staged Road Shows in Abu Dhabi and Dubai – an initiative that met an overwhelming response from UAE based fund managers, bankers and the Pakistani expatriates. An even bigger milestone was achieved when the events were further taken to London and New York in July 2007. The international exposure from these Road Shows has brought great success and significant influx of foreign investments to Pakistan.
Stock market, being one of the most lucrative avenues for investment with consistent returns over the last few years, has immense potential for growth. It is not only aimed at educating potential investors about the workings of the market for better understanding of risks and benefits but also to remove misconceptions about Capital Market investments. Moreover, it provides a platform to investors where they can raise their concerns and seek clarification.
The event at Faisalabad will include keynotes and presentations by Mr. Mohammad Bashir Janmohammed, Chairman CDC, Mr. Muhammad Hanif, CEO, CDC, Mr. Mohammed Sohail, Director Equity Broking, JS Global Capital, Pakistan and Mr. Adnan Afridi, Managing Director, KSE.
