The Philippine Stock Exchange is the national stock exchange of the Philippines. It was formed in 1992 through the merger of the Manila Stock Exchange and Makati Stock Exchange. Both of these stock exchanges have been in existence for decades. In 1992, the stock exchange was reorganized to create the current Philippine Stock Exchange, Inc.
The PSE serves as a hub for companies seeking capital. Listing shares on the exchange allows them to raise funds more easily. Moreover, once a company has been listed, it is easier to raise money through additional public offerings. This helps in the growth and expansion of the Philippine economy. The PSE has played a vital role in fostering economic growth and job creation.
Its social media accounts are a good place to stay informed about the latest happenings in the Philippine stock market. Social media allows the PSE to communicate with investors and members of the public about new offerings. It also helps promote PSE EASy, which is an online IPO subscription platform for small investors. Prior to PSE EASy, subscription to LSI IPOs was done by hand, face-to-face, and was limited to people living in Metro Manila.
The PSE has various departments and agencies that help with daily operations. Its Public Information Assistance Center (PIAC) covers complaints mediation and information promotion. It also handles the distribution of corporate announcements and foreign quotation reports. Lastly, it has a Corporate Communications Department that oversees all forms of media, public relations, and educational campaigns.
