On April 18, 2021, the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) Initiative reported that “the Nicaragua Stock Exchange — Bolsa de Valores de Nicaragua (BVN) — has solidified its commitment to transparency and sustainability by becoming a member of the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative. The SSE’s newest member joins a network of now 102 stock exchanges around the world that are committed to promoting sustainable development.
‘At the Nicaraguan Stock Exchange we consider that being part of the UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges initiative is a new window to the world. Undoubtedly, we will take a series of medium and long-term initiatives based on the expertise and cooperation resulting from this great opportunity that is offered to us. For a small country, with many challenges, and with great biodiversity, Nicaragua has 7% of the world’s biodiversity in only 0.13% of territory worldwide, promoting sustainability is an environmental and social need, and we will open a new path towards financial innovation to contribute to an economy more sustainable.’ Gerardo Argüello, CEO of Bolsa de Valores de Nicaragua (BVN).”
