Financial instts' help sought for women investors

Speakers at a seminar in Chittagong on Tuesday sought financial institutions' help for the development of women entrepreneurship. In a bid to raise awareness about portfolio investment and encourage womenfolk to invest in the capital market, Chittagong Stock Exchange (CSE) and Woman Chamber of Commerce & Industry (WCCI) have jointly organised a seminar for the members of the WCCI, says a press release.
Chief Executive Officer of CSE AB Siddique and President of WCCI Monwara Hakim Ali, among others, were present at the seminar held in the port city.
AB Siddique said women now do not need to go to any brokerage house to buy or sell shares, rather they can do it at home if they have internet facilities.
Monwara Hakim asked the financial institutions for offering credit at lower interest rates to develop women entrepreneurship.
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) should play an effective role for the sake of small investors, Monwara said, adding that manipulators are still active and they sometimes deprive the small investors of their due profit by taking advantage of frequent policy changes by the SEC.
Loopholes still exist in monitoring measures, she observed.
