Al-Mansoori: Important achievement for QSE

Qatar Stock Exchange CEO Rashid bin Ali al-Mansoori was re-elected a board member of the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) during its 2017 annual meetings held in Bangkok, which also resulted in the election of board members representing such regions as the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Europe-Middle East-Africa, the QSE said yesterday in a statement. Al-Mansoori was elected by the WFE general assembly to represent the Europe-Middle East-Africa region for a three-year term.  He expressed his satisfaction for being elected as a board member of WFE, the largest international platform for world stock, futures and options exchanges.
“Winning the elections for the post of WFE board member is an important achievement for the Qatar Stock Exchange and an indication of its prominent regional and global position,” al-Mansoori said. “We are happy to be part of an organisation that represents markets worldwide that are fair, transparent, well-regulated and that play an important role in the economies of our respective countries.”
The WFE is a central reference point for the securities industry, and for exchanges themselves. It offers members guidance on their business strategies, and on improvements and harmonisation of their management practices. It also develops and promotes standards in markets, publishes research on topical subjects, supports reform, international cooperation and coordination among regulators. Al-Mansoori held on Wednesday and yesterday several meetings with senior officials of a number of Arab and international stock exchanges and addressed a number of issues of concern to exchanges and investors.
