Lisbon - International Women’s Day

NYSE Euronext Lisbon celebrates International Women’s Day with a special closing bell ceremony highlighting the activities of Bolsa de Valores Sociais.

Bolsa de Valores Sociais (BVS) is a “social values exchange” that lists local Portuguese social projects that seek third party financing. A listing on BVS can provide such financing, it gives visibility to the project and helps to attract investors. We had the pleasures to have on our balcony a group of great women that lead some of the listed projects. The projects managed by these women were all successfully financed.

Our guests to ring this Closing Bell were Ana Pinto Coelho, from BVS, Mafalda Simões Coelho and Assunção de Noronha e Andrade from Casa de Santo António, and Margarida Pinto Correia and Suzana Fardilha from Fundação do Gil.
