The CSE Investor Education Team will educate visitors on the principal elements of investing, provide them with special publications and answer any queries on investing.

Potential investors can also take the next step in their journey, of wise investment, by liaising with a Stock Broker or Representatives from Unit Trusts.

With the Stock Market being on an upward trajectory with the All Share Price Index (ASPI) closing at 6,313.20 with a 6.8 per‐cent increase and the S&P SL20 closing at 3,490.67 with a 6.9 percent increase, (as of today) it is an ideal opportunity for investors to grow their funds through prudent investment, CSE said.
