Peter Kubricky, the president of the Bratislava stock exchange, is in favor of extensive cooperation with the WSE and does not rule out capital ties. He estimates though those decisions can be taken after the parliamentary elections in Slovakia.
“I am interested in extensive cooperation with the Warsaw Stock Exchange to improve liquidity and attract potential new customers to our market,” Kubricky told reporters. He added that such cooperation should not exclude the option of capital connections, but the decision is in the hands of the government.
The Bratislava Stock Exchange specializes in trading corporate bonds and is the smallest stock exchange in the region. The capitalization of companies listed on it is about €9 million, and for comparison, the capitalization of companies from the WSE at the end of 2018 was €136 billion.
