InterCapital is exceptionally proud to announce that the Ljubljana Stock Exchange has awarded us as the Member of the Year for a 4th consecutive year.
This award comes as a result of our leading equity market share of 30%, supported by continued research activities and the contribution of the market-making mandates.
InterCapital became the inaugural provider of market-making services in Slovenia for the first time since 2008, in 2019. Since then, we have expanded our coverage of Slovenian blue chips, and at the moment, we provide market-making services to virtually all Slovenian blue chips, including Krka, Triglav, Petrol, Sava Re, NLB, and Cinkarna Celje. At the same time, we provide market-making services to the ICCRO (CROBEX10 TR) and ICSLO (SBITOP TR) ETFs.
In addition to the market making, the award comes as a result of our continuous investments into a fully independent research team, focused on regional equity, a securities promotion platform with the goal of providing our clients with comprehensive, in-depth, and forward-looking coverage of the most quality investment opportunities in the region. Our research team has one of the largest coverages, covering all the Slovenian blue chips.
We would like to express our gratitude for once again receiving the Member of the Year award. 2022, as we all know, 2022 has been a year marked by volatility, uncertainty, and geopolitical developments that surprised us all. Despite these challenges, we continue to provide our expertise and quality of service, something that was recognized by both the investor, and corporate communities.
Finally, we would like to note that this recognition could not be achieved without our clients and partners, as well as the trust they put into our work, level of professionalism, and will to improve the regional capital markets. We are extremely proud to be the leading broker in Croatia and Slovenia. Even though the regional capital market faces many obstacles, we also see ample opportunities for improvement, something that we will continue doing in the following year.
