World Investor Week: Countries

Portugal

Lead Organization: Comissão do Mercado de Valores Mobiliários

The CMVM's participation in the WIW is to be conducted together with the more relevant stakeholders in the Portuguese market, e.g. Euronext Lisbon, APB the Portuguese Banking Association, APS the Portuguese Insurance Association, APIFPP the Investment Funds Association and AEM the Listed Companies Association., as well as Banco de Portugal and Autoridade de Supervisão de Seguros e Fundos de Pensões (the banking and insurance regulators, respectively, and our partners in the National Financial Education Plan). Participation of all the above mentioned participants in this initiative will enrich the experience by encompassing different points of view around the same goals and concerns about investor protection and capital markets development.

Although these are early days, we are planning to host a major conference on the 3rd of October, involving all the stakeholders and also same renowned Portuguese universities that we are currently contacting. The initiative should have the support of the Ministry of Education, our partner in the National Financial Education Plan. A Media campaign shall be conducted involving printed and online press, television and radio as well as social media. In time, as we define action, we will be posting our initiatives on the dedicated webpage of the event.
