Capital market all over the world contributes to the economy through providing long-term finance to the industries and infrastructures which is suitable for their growth. Such financing assists in industrialization, boosting up production, generating scope of employment, and facilitates foreign currency earning. Capital market around the world involves risk, Bangladesh is of no exception. Investors in this market need to learn how to make risk-adjusted return.
Covid-19 has made an impact over the stock market around the world, but the spirit of the market will bring back its position with normalcy in industrial production and consumption. However, Investors need to keep patience and understand, among others, the ups and downs of the economy. Along with support of the Government, Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission is committed to continue facilitating the market in any situation.
I hope Bangladesh capital market will continue to grow to fulfil the financing needs of the industries and infrastructures, and thus contribute more and more in the economy in the years to come ensuring all good governance policies.
