For Cambodians’ better financial literacy and opportunities which will add greater merits to the country’s economic health, PP Link Securities (PPLS) is committed to rejuvenating its roadshow campaign in order to provide financial know-how at provinces across the Kingdom.
Following the previous all-city-and-province roadshow campaigns in 2018, 2019, and 2022, PPLS, in cooperation with Cambodian Derivatives Exchange (CDX) and Goldwell Capital (GWC), has successfully carried on its roadshow 2023 at Battambang province, following the first two at Kampong Cham and Siem Reap provinces.
H.E. Moul Thon, Deputy Governor of Battambang province, presided over the event, and together with Securities and Exchange Regulator of Cambodia (SERC), gave PPLS, CDX, and GWC a useful tool to make the seminar purposeful and beneficial.
The new theme of the roadshow “The Benefits of Financial Markets and How to Start Involving in the Markets” came shaping the last one “The Importance of Understanding Financial Investments”. This was to extensively provide financial education regarding the emerging local securities market, derivatives market, and other important investment-related information.
In her presentation, Mr. Sothy Brokorb, Deputy Head of Securities Market Operation Supervision Division of Securities Market Supervision Department, statistically revealed the progress of Cambodia’s financial market saying that with 9 companies from both public and private institutions listed at Cambodia Securities Exchange for the public to invest in, it has contributed to the resilience of Cambodia’s economy. For instance, as of 2022, SERC registered new 35,968 Investor Identifications, with the trading volume increased by 102.5% compared to 2021.
“For the derivatives market, it is also one of the most supportive investment tools for both individuals and corporations. In 2022, the total trading value reached 1.26 billion riels equivalent to around $314.96 million,” Mr. Sothy Brokorb.
On behalf of the market regulator, Mr. Sothy Brokorb was proud of the hosts for their professionalism and commitment to the development of Cambodia’s financial market.
Witnessing numerous participants and great appreciation for providing broader financial investment knowledge and accessibility to the provincial citizens, H.E. Moul Thon shared the same enthusiasm as this roadshow would improve the citizens’ financial literacy and update their awareness to get involved in investment journeys in the future. He also opened the door for other coming opportunities.
Adding to that, Mr. Chea Sothea, Chairman and Director of PPLS and one of the distinguished speakers, emphasized the company’s pride in conducting events such as roadshows, seminars, workshops, exhibitions, and many more, all for the benefits of Cambodian people and, in a larger extent, for Cambodia’s economic growth.
“Education is the root of every sector to grow sustainably. This is why we are here and out there, again and again, educating the public about investment and what we should take to improve their knowledge and investment performance. We are honored to accomplish many things and make consistent contributions to our financial markets,” said Mr. Chea Sothea.
In addition to the financial market know-how, two short presentation sessions went beyond and offered daily self-motivation techniques for oneself and his or her surrounding people so as to build a quality life which is not only successful as an income generator, but also well physically and mentally.
“A healthy life comes with a positive mindset. PPLS employs motivation tools to improve work productivity, communication, and employee mood in general. This time, our roadshow is partly equipped with such a direction so that the company can give encouragement and share some key tips for all the participants to live positively and happily,” said Mr. Chhea Chhayheng, Business Manager of PPLS.
Another PPLS Business Manager Mr. Long Samnang, who shared the same topic with Mr. Chhea Chhayheng, said that, “Sharing my experience and inspiration with all the participants today creates a new opportunity and inspiration for me as well, and I hope it will be a counting memory for everyone to take home”.
The roadshow ended fruitfully as it greatly enhanced the awareness and understanding of the participants regarding the securities market, the importance of financial literacy, investment opportunities, and the motivational guidelines for a better life. After expressing appreciation to SERC, Battambang administration, partners, and participants, PPLS gained more ambition and commitment to doing more for our clients, country, and the world.
