QSE rings the bell for financial literacy initiative as part of the world investor week
DOHA: Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE) held an event in which the opening bell was rang to promote financial literacy and boost financial inclusion in response to a call by the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) to partner with the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) to set up the inaugural “Ring the Bell for Financial Literacy” initiative as part of the World Investor Week 2019.
Investors and employees of QSE participated in the activity which was held in the trading floor of QSE where Mrs. Aisha Al Mahmood, Director of the IT of QSE, rang the bell on behalf of QSE management.
WIW is a week-long, global campaign to raise awareness about the importance of investor education and protection, and to highlight the various initiatives of securities regulators in these two critical areas.
This year, IOSCO and the WFE are working in partnership on a new initiative to support WIW called ‘Ring the Bell for Financial Literacy’. The WFE invited its members to hold an opening or closing bell ringing ceremony, or a workshop, during WIW 2019 to promote the work they do in their own jurisdictions to improve financial education and literacy.
