On 25 November 2021 the Belgrade Stock Exchange (BELEX) and Athens Stock Exchange (ATHEX) signed an Agreement for the provision of trading facilities that will enable the migration of BELEX’s trading activities, as the market operator, to ATHEX’s trading platform.
As announced in our previous newsflash (link), the two stock exchanges entered into an agreement to take advantage of synergies and business opportunities in an era of accelerated globalization. As part of this initiative, after receiving the approval from the Serbian Securities Commission, ATHEX acquired 10.24% of the total number of shares of BELEX.
Additionally, as a next step in the mutual cooperation, BELEX’s trading activities as the market operator will be migrated to the trading platform of ATHEX.
