Globally, stock exchanges are institutions that have been established by individual societies for their own benefit. Investors in search of wealth creation opportunities have utilized them for decades as a mechanism for protecting and augmenting their monetary savings. The ultimate transference of capital, from individual and retail investors to governments and corporations, is an efficient market allocation that allows for the strategic financing of development projects that generate invaluable employment and wealth.
