Investor base doubled since 2004, much at stake for individuals

The outcome of today’s meeting between President Mahinda Rajapaksa and capital market stakeholders is not necessarily to have an impact on a few individuals but half a million people, which is equivalent to 10% of the families in the country as per some analysts.

As at end June, there were 506,471 local individuals' accounts within the CDS and this figure is excluding number of multiple registrations sought by the same client through different participants). In comparison to 2004’s figure of 290,340, the individual investor base has almost doubled in six and half years. Within this base is a large number of small investors, which understandably is of concern to both regulators and brokers alike. Interestingly the gender balance (female:male) ratio was in favour of women on the basis of 58:42 in 2010 though it has reversed to 45:55 last year.

The number of local companies investing in the market too has also doubled from 3,720 in 2004 to 7,615. The base of foreign individuals too has doubled from 2,044 to 4,017 by end June whilst foreign companies numbered 4,213, up from 3,047, rounding up the total operational CDS accounts to 685,728.

Experts have pointed out that though the investor base has crossed the half a million mark, the number of active investors are not high whilst some hadn’t traded for years.

The Colombo Stock Brokers Association has maintained that the CSE and SEC should work closely with the broking industry to make the market popular among the masses given the Government’s efforts to steer the economy to double digit growth and doubling of per capita income harnessing the unprecedented opportunity following the end of the war three years ago.

After two bull runs in 2009 and 2010 rocketing Colombo as world’s best performing market, CSE dipped by 8.5% last year and so far by 20% in 2012, evoking mixed emotions and reactions as to the merits and demerits as well as the causes for the current state of affairs of capital market.

There is consensus that an inclusive and a united approach by all stakeholders is key to make capital market vibrant on a sustainable basis devoid of extreme actions both on the part of some investors and regulators.

Thanks Red for sharing this article with interesting statistics.

However, "FT readers pulse" (a poll said to have conducted by FT) should be taken with a pinch of salt because they (FT) were the people who brainwashed its readers to this effect (that SEC is over regulating at the instance of a few interested guys) when, in fact, SEC was never given a free hand to perform its legitimate duties. Kindly refer to warnings issued to FT by the SEC recently. I see this poll as a sinister campaign with ulterior motives.

?How can we say SEC is over regulating when they were made to amend almost all recent regulations in no time and when they were made to settle all court cases out of courts. Very same people who were sent to jail in USA were allowed to go scot-free in Sri Lanks.

Ha Ha!! This is the FT version of "over regulation". Be careful when you read FT articles because you too would be brain washed.

Poor readers who do not know that they are brain washed.

whats the total number of votes it is 1456. this may be the total circulation of FT. Some companies buy FT ( they think that it is a "Business" paper) so the actual circulation is less than that. and the paper is only in Colombo and Kandy. (may be some other few areas).

so who can trust this poll? and just go and check the face book people who has voted saysing that the stock market is over regulated. thats the Mafia. there are some familiare names and some are good friends of the Mafia.

FT is a big part of this Mafia. SEC tried to fight agaist the mafia by issuing one MAFIA Member called FT 3 letters warning the paper. this is why we should not abandond SEC right now. we should support them. We Sri Lankans always talk about good things, honesty, credibility etc. But when someone is trying to follow it do we really support them?

Good point. I like your line of argument.
