16 December 2021 - 10th Annual Zagreb Stock Exchange Awards Ceremony Held in Zagreb
In 2012, the Zagreb Stock Exchange founded the Zagreb Stock Exchange Awards with an aim to strenghten the recognition of the capital market and its active participants among the financial and general public. Award Committee of the Zagreb Stock Exchange presented awards to winners in the following categories: Top Turnover Share, Top Price Gainer, Top Turnover Gainer, Member of the Year, ZSE Academy Award for Contribution to Capital Market Education, Award for Contribution to the Capital Market Development, Share of the Year.
Since 2018, as part of the awards ceremony, PwC Croatia, in cooperation with the Zagreb Stock Exchange, has been awarding its Building Public Trust Award to companies that stand out for their quality reporting.
Ivana Gažić, President of the Management Board of the Zagreb Stock Exchange, expressed satisfaction that this award ceremony has become a traditional event aimed at continuously identifying and rewarding positive examples in our market: This year's awards ceremony was very important to us because in these challenging times we wanted to further emphasize the positive examples from the Croatian capital market and also mark 30 years of the Zagreb Stock Exchange.
A lot of positive things happened: we had 3 new issues of shares on the regulated market, 3 more listings based on the recapitalization, and we also included 5 bonds of all types (state, corporate and municipal). Our Progress market for SMEs was also active, as was Funderbeam, a platform for financing startups, where we create an environment in which companies can seek capital at all stages of their growth and development. Last year's ETFs achieved excellent turnover, and we had about 10% more Zagreb Stock Exchange seminars. The indices recovered, and trade statistics show that the market was quite lively and that investor interest was not lacking. We are celebrating 6 years since we became the owners of the Ljubljana Stock Exchange, and we have recently further increased our share in the Macedonian Stock Exchange. More than 1000 individuals gathered at our numerous events, exchanging knowledge, experiences and getting to know our companies. In addition, we are celebrating a big and significant jubilee - 30 years of the Zagreb Stock Exchange. When we draw the line, we can say that 2021 was a very successful year for the Zagreb Stock Exchange.
