NEW YORK – December 18, 2019 – IPC, a leading global provider of secure, compliant communications and networking solutions for the global financial markets community, announces today its expansion into the Lima Stock Exchange (Bolsa de Valores de Lima; BVL). BVL, the stock exchange of Peru, is one of the most important stock exchanges in the southern hemisphere with a market capitalization of approximately US$149 billion, equivalent to roughly 67% of Peru’s GDP. It is the most active mining stock exchange in South America. BVL’s market data is now available to IPC clients in the equity and derivatives markets.
“Wherever clients want to transact, IPC continues to support their investment goals,” said Mike Smith, Director of Global Exchange Relations Management, IPC. “With the addition of the Lima Stock Exchange to IPC’s global ecosystem, we continue to grow our all-encompassing cloud delivery model.”
“The Lima Stock Exchange constantly strives to find new ways to make our market information more accessible to global investors. Therefore, we are pleased to collaborate with IPC and continue to strengthen the profile of our market and improve the investor experience,” said Miguel A. Zapatero, Business General Manager, Lima Stock Exchange.
BVL was founded in 1860 and has nearly 260 listed companies. The exchange is also significantly strengthened through its participation in the Mercado Integrado Latinoamericano (MILA). Through MILA, companies listed on BVL have a much higher international exposure due to its integration with equity markets in Colombia, Chile and Mexico.
