LuxSE and West-African regional exchange BRVM join forces on sustainable finance
Luxembourg 14 September 2022: During an official visit to Luxembourg by
representatives from Bourse Régionale des Valeurs Mobilières (BRVM), the Luxembourg Stock
Exchange (LuxSE) and the West-African regional exchange (BRVM) celebrated the signing of a
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
The MoU, which places a heavy emphasis on sustainable finance, marks the first official step in what
is hoped to be a journey of cooperation to strengthen sustainable finance in the emerging markets
covered under BRVM’s remit.
“Sustainable finance represents a financing opportunity for emerging countries because they have the possibility of attracting a new type of investors, who otherwise would not have been interested in their bond issues. That is why, I am delighted with the signing of this MoU with the Luxembourg Stock Exchange for the development of sustainable finance within the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU)”, said Edoh Kossi AMENOUNVE, CEO of BRVM.
