According to Heriwalter Domingos, technician from Bodiva's Negotiation Department, who was speaking at a press conference to present the results achieved this year and perspectives for 2023, the amount reached refers to the period between January and November of this year.
Among the types traded, bonds indexed to the exchange rate also stood out, representing 19.52 percent.
In August of this year, Bodiva broke the record for the largest amount traded in a single stock exchange session, with an amount of around 124 billion kwanzas, allowing it to reach the highest monthly amount traded since its existence, in 2014, of around of 335 billion kwanzas.
Heriwalter Domingos highlighted the dynamics of the capital market, noting that the record reached represented a variation of 48.05 percent, compared to the same period, and 19.52 percent compared to the whole year of 2022.
According to Heriwalter Domingos, Bodiva currently has 26 members, of which 22 are trading, two are associates and two brokerage firms, with Banco de Fomento Angola (BFA) having the highest percentage of the amount traded by Bodiva, representing around 25.51 percent market share, followed by Banco Angolano de Investimento (BAI) which represented 19.63 percent of the total market share and Standard Bank Angola around 9.16 percent.
For 2023, Bodiva envisages broadening the investor base for the capital market, the insertion of more brokerage houses and distribution companies, due to the transition from services currently provided by banks, which will now be provided by these entities.
Another challenge, advanced the technician, is the consolidation of the new segments reached this year, including the stock market, which in 2022 had a representation of 1.07 percent of the amount traded and with a tendency to grow, because "it is is a variable income product, whose attractiveness is greater than treasury bonds".
"We will tend to have a more robust and dynamic stock market over the next few years", said the technician, noting that Bodiva activated the stock exchange market, through the admission and trading of BAI shares, on 9 June.
The attraction of private issuers and the increase in foreign exchange non-resident investors are other milestones to be achieved next year.
This year, for the first time, Bodiva had investments from foreign exchange non-residents, "a very important moment" for the national market.
In her speech, the director of Bodiva, Cristina Lourenço, said that the capital market has shown "increasing signs of development", highlighting the need for access to information "clear, rigorous, timely and, above all, open access to all".
"In our market in particular and due to the incipient phase it is in, it is even more important that we do this information well, not only Bodiva as the management company of the regulated market but all the 'players' in the market", she said.
