BME has sponsored the 13th edition of the Spain Investors Day (SID) and after two years of pandemic, its chairman, Jos Dijsselhof, has been able to participate in person. The SID has established itself as an essential corporate access event, always the first of the year, in which the main Spanish companies have met with major international investors and regulators to analyze the economic reality, its challenges and opportunities.
The objective of the SID is to boost confidence in Spain as a pole of attraction for investment.
Jos Dijsselhof, Chairman of BME and CEO of SIX, made two speeches at SID. On the 11th, he welcomed the attendees to the dinner held at the Palacio de la Bolsa de Madrid. On this occasion, he highlighted SIX's contribution as a generator of growth for Spain as the third largest European operator in the capital markets. "Our market infrastructures make it possible for companies and public issuers to continue to raise financing through IPOs, capital increases and bond issues," he said.
The following day, he took part in the round table to talk about the opportunities that Spanish companies offer to international investors. On this occasion, he stressed that Spain is an unavoidable bridge to Latin America and part of its investment attractiveness and made reference to the 18 stock market openings in 2022, as well as the increase in the level of shareholder remuneration.
This edition of SID was attended by 47 listed companies, most of them from the IBEX 35®, and more than 100 international investors, including the world's leading investment fund managers. This meeting provided the opportunity to tell first-hand about their future plans and is BME's first corporate access action of the year, to be followed by different meetings in Paris and Geneva, as well as our well-known Medcap Forum and Latibex Forum.
