Bolivian Stock Exchange: total transactions amounted to $11.8 bn in 2019

A total of $11.8 billion was traded on the Bolivian Stock Exchange (BSE) in 2019, which is 30% lower than in 2018, due to the uncertainty generated by the cancelled elections of October 20 and a decrease in liquidity in the market. However, demand for companies seeking to finance the public stock exchange grew; $550 million placed in new broadcasts in 2018 and $750 million in 2019. The outlook for 2020 is to reach $12 billion traded.
