The KSE chairman explained that in view of consolidation of business of stock exchanges, all Trading Right Entitlement Certificates (TREC) holders of Lahore and Islamabad exchanges would be issued TREC of Pakistan Stock Exchange without any fee and they would be treated at par with existing TREC holders of KSE, by equally having direct access to KSE’s deep liquidity pool and trading platform.
He emphasised that with cessation of licences of LSE and ISE to function as stock exchanges, Pakistan Stock Exchange would emerge as the single national stock exchange “to serve investors in a seamless and efficient manner”.
The House unanimously approved the Special Resolution, as placed before it, without any change.
