“We are optimistic about the stock market”
We are optimistic about the stock market of the country. Companies listed in the country pay more taxes. For this, good companies should be listed with incentives. Professor Abu Ahmed commented that the stock market will move forward if everyone, including the media, is united.
He said these things at a round table meeting titled ‘Stock Market Present and Future’ organized by BMBA and Capital Market Journalists Forum (CMJF) at a hotel in the capital on Saturday, September 17. Stock Market regulatory body Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) Chairman Professor Shibli Rubayat-Ul-Islam was present as the chief guest at the meeting.
It was presided over by BMBA President Chhaydur Rahman. CMJF president Ziaur Rahman presided over the program. BMBA Senior Vice President Md. Moniruzzaman CFA presented the keynote.
Stock market analyst Prof. Abu Ahmed said that there is hope and despair in our market. Although there is a need to attract good companies to this market, the tax rate gap between listed companies and unlisted companies is discouraged. It is not the right policy of the government.
Abu Ahmed believes that institutional investors should be given quota benefits to large investors in IPO.
BMBA president said that not all people of the country will come to the stock market. Only those who understand stock market investment will come. Investors will face loss if they invest in the stock market without understanding.
He said that the economy of the country will be dynamic through investment in the stock market. Apart from this, government revenue will increase along with employment generation. Investors need to think about things related to their thinking. Then we will see a better capital market in the future.
He also said that the tax rate difference between listed and unlisted companies was 10pc earlier. Now bringing this difference to 7.5pc. This difference needs to be made bigger. We are thinking about improving the overall economy.
Former chairman of BSEC Khairul Hossain said that every mutual fund has given cash dividends. Mutual funds will gain 25pc growth this year. Good companies should be brought to the stock market. If we can convert 4 lakh mutual funds into 10 lakh then investment will increase.
