(Persia Digest) – The Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Organization of Iran said: “Presently, over 20 thousand billion rials worth of foreign investment has been made in the Iranian stock exchange, mostly following the JCPOA 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers.”
Shapur Mohammadi added: “More foreign investment is planned for the capital market as a step towards globalization.”
He continued by saying: “To achieve this, the country’s stock exchange must become a member of international organizations, such as the International Commission on Securities Commissions IOSCO where Iran is presently a member of the Monitoring Board.”
After the nuclear agreement and lifting of sanctions, foreign companies have shown a growing interest in the Iranian capital market and stock purchases.
Saeid Fallahpur, Securities and Exchange Organization MoB, had said earlier: “Foreign investment in our capital market in early 2013 was an estimated one thousand 397 billion rials. This figure went up to 12 thousand 321 billion dollars in 2015 with a 782% growth.
