These are hot on the heels of workshops held in Matara last week and in Negombo on Monday.
Investor Day is an open day concept, where investors from the selected region can come and understand what the role of the CSE is, and also learn about the investment opportunities available with the CSE.
The Investor Days will see the participation of key stakeholders in the market including the CSE, stock broker firms and unit trust companies, which will provide the public with a comprehensive understanding with regard to their specific roles and the interlinked mechanisms of the market.
The entrance to the Investor Days will be free of charge and will provide participants with an ideal one-on-
one opportunity to raise questions pertaining to the market and plan their investments with broker firms and unit trust companies who will be present at the event.
These one day events will contain presentations, quiz competitions, lucky draws for all participants, and in addition will provide an opportunity for participants to sign up for the various education workshops scheduled to be held in that particular region.
