Joining in the ASEAN Trading Link will boost transaction of ASEAN securities trading conveniently and efficiently. In addition, it will increase options and varieties of financial products for Thai investors, boost business opportunities for brokers and listed companies.
"The Industry Wide Test (IWT) with brokers went smoothly, while there are initially 9 Thai brokers which are ready to offer trading via the ASEAN Trading Link on October 15, 2012. The others are developing their internal system and they plan to join the ASEAN Trading Link at the later stage. So, we strongly believe adding in the ASEAN Trading Link will attract more ASEAN investors to Thai stock market." said Charamporn.
