Euronext celebrates its strategic relationship with Qatar Stock Exchange
Mr Rashid Al Mansoori, CEO of Qatar Stock Exchange rang the closing bell for the Euronext Paris markets, alongside Stéphane Boujnah, CEO of Euronext.
Today Euronext welcomed a senior delegation from the Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE) led by the CEO Mr Rashid Al Mansoori. To celebrate the occasion, Mr Al Mansoori rang the closing bell for the Euronext Paris Markets, alongside Stéphane Boujnah, CEO of Euronext.
QSE is the principal stock market of Qatar and its primary aim is to support Qatar's economy by providing a venue for capital raising for Qatari companies. Like Euronext, QSE provides investors a platform through which they can trade a variety of products in a transparent and efficient manner.
QSE has operated a customized version of the Universal Trading Platform since 5 September 2010. Technology is a critical factor in Qatar’s journey towards recognition as a world-class financial centre and this is one of the reasons that they use the same industry-leading technology as Euronext.
Qatar is a major investor in France and other European countries and QSE is a strategic client for Euronext. The relationship between the two Exchanges dates from 2009 and encompasses both technology and business opportunities. Furthermore, the importance of Qatar in Middle Eastern and, increasingly, in global financial markets means that this is a relationship with significant potential for future European issuers and investors.
