During this year, the Regulations on the Registration and Exclusion of Securities in the Public Stock Market Registry and Stock Market were modified, allowing, in this way, the BVL to promote the registration of foreign securities, facilitating access to a greater number of investment alternatives; so much so that last year the BVL listed 28 ETFs (Exchange Traded Fund) and 24 in Equity Securities.
In order to promote the Alternative Securities Market (MAV), in June and July, the Lima Stock Market (BVL) organized the following workshops: "The ABC on the Issuance of Commercial Papers" and " MAV Experiences". Prominent speakers related to the Peruvian capital market participated in these enriching events.
It should also be noted that, in December 2015, the first bond issuance was carried out through the MAV, with the company Edpyme Inversiones La Cruz.
Also, during the year, the S /. 100 million in amounts placed in the MAV were exceeded.
