Raiffeisen Centrobank (RCB) and Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB) organized on October 18th in Stockholm the first Romania Investors Day event dedicated to Nordic investors. The event brought together Swedish investors and Romanian blue chips.

Adrian Tanase, BVB CEO, stated: "We are committed to extend our reach for new investors in Romanian capital market, and the Nordic experience shows that good financial returns, long term value creation and corporate governance are key factors for portfolio investment decision."

Ozgür Guyuldar, Head of Emerging Markets Sales & Sales Trading at Raiffeisen Centrobank, pointed out the importance of Romanian capital market for Raiffeisen Group strategy and the entire European region: "We see steadily increasing investor interest towards Romanian listed companies not only in Europe, but also in USA. We acknowledge the potential of this market therefore we are delighted to present new opportunities for corporate access activities and to build business relations with Romanian corporates and Romanian capital market representatives."

Following the increasing interest for Romania in recent years, Raiffeisen Centrobank decided to organize the first dedicated Romania investors’ day in Stockholm on October 18, 2018, where five Romanian companies presented their investment story to local investors. This one-day event offered a unique opportunity to the investors to meet top Romanian companies listed on the Bucharest Stock Exchange on a one-on-one basis.

Present at the event, Ionut Mastacaneanu, Tax Director, KPMG in Romania, explained: “Romanian tax environment facilitates the access of foreign investors to the local capital market, as they can benefit of the extended double tax treaties network Romania has in place (over 90 treaties), as well as of a reduced domestic withholding tax rate applicable to dividend payments (5%). Still, the long-term stability and predictability of the tax legislation, as well as minimizing the tax compliance procedures, are key to attracting new investment flows.”
