On the verge of hosting the World Federation of Exchanges 62nd Annual Meeting, the Bermuda Stock Exchange rode the tropical storm winds of Hurricane Lee and remained open for business.

Availability for trading and settlement on the BSX market was expected to continue during normal operating hours, 8.30am to 4.30pm, on Thursday and Friday.

Listing services are also operating as normal.

As a precaution, the Pitts Bay Road office closed access from 2pm Thursday until noon on Friday, and expect to reopen subject to a safety inspection.

The Bermuda Stock Exchange will host the 2023 general assembly and annual meeting of the World Federation of Exchanges, starting Tuesday.

The global meeting of exchange and clearing leaders will be held from September 19 to 21. Together with central counterparties from around the world, they gather to think, engage, listen and speak to stakeholders.

The event is attracting representatives of the WFE’s more than 250 member exchanges. Delegations from more than 90 countries will gather on the island, as leaders from capital markets and financial services including global stock exchanges, regulatory authorities, the buy side and government meet for in-depth discussions on topical issues in the stock exchange industry.

The BSX hosting is in collaboration with the Bermuda Business Development Agency and the Bermuda Tourism Authority.
