Euronext Distinguishes Capital Market Participants and Calls for Portuguese Market to Work Together


Lisbon - 18 February 2016 – The fifth edition of the Euronext Lisbon Awards, was held yesterday.

In his opening remarks, Luís Laginha de Sousa, CEO of Euronext Lisbon, underlined: “We remain strong believers in the fundamental role which can only be played by capital markets, as far as financing the real economy is concerned. Our actions are aligned with this view and through the Euronext Lisbon Awards, not only do we express public recognition but we also try to incentivize additional efforts, dedication and commitment, from people and organizations, who contribute to the development of the capital markets. Euronext will continue to dedicate significant time and effort to the communities it serves.
