He was speaking when he received a cheque worth K500, 000 from Nico Asset Managers towards the symposium.

Kamanga said the indaba aims at sensitising both the issuers and investors by giving practical solutions on how they can raise capital through stock market.

He said this will help woo potential investors to the market.

“All along, people have been raising capital through other means but now we are relaying the message that the stock market is there to provide capital. We intend to bring the stock market to the public,” Kamanga said.

On the sidelines, Investment Manager at Nico Asset Managers, Chikondi Gomani, also expressed hope on the foreseen impact of the symposium to the capital market.

“The efforts are in line with our business. Our expectation is that more companies should join the market because the numbers are too low. New listings will open up more avenues and as a business, we will have a lot of choices over which companies to invest in,” he said.

Reserve Bank of Malawi Governor Dalitso Kabambe is expected to preside over the symposium.
