Portuguese Stock Exchange awards capital market performance for 2011

Lisbon, 27th January 2012 – For the first time, NYSE Euronext has awarded 16 organisations that excelled in the capital markets in 2011. The awards are aimed at raising the visibility of those companies operating in the stock market throughout last year. These include issuers, brokers, investment banks, analysts, fund managers, law firms, academics, who all actively contributed to the development of the Portuguese capital market. The creation of the NYSE Euronext Lisbon Awards is another step in the development of the market and ultimately to Portugal’s economic growth by the Portuguese Exchange.

At the award ceremony, Luís Laginha de Sousa, Chairman and CEO of NYSE Euronext Lisbon said in a statement: “The capital market can and should be an important contributor to the financing of the economy, namely as a place for attracting national and international savings”.

He added: “In Portugal we need to make significant efforts for the capital market to reinforce its supporting role in the development of the economy”.

“By recognising the performance and efforts of the different actors in the financial ecosystem, the Portuguese Stock Exchange, at its first edition of the ‘NYSE Euronext Lisbon Awards, aims to promote and develop a positive dynamic within the capital markets” the CEO of the Portuguese exchange emphasised.

For the awards in 2013, relating to the activity in 2012, a new category has been created: Best Media article on capital markets. In this category the best published article on capital markets will be awarded based on relevant criteria, opportunity, depth and rigueur.
