Philippines Capital Markets

Though smaller than some other capital markets in the region, the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) reached record highs in 2017 against a backdrop of robust macroeconomic expansion and the sweeping Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion programme, which should support the government’s sizeable infrastructure agenda, Build, Build, Build (BBB). Benefitting from rising levels of trading and liquidity, and rapid growth in fixed income, the PSE is poised for a strong 2018. Efforts to finance the BBB agenda should see a near-term increase in the amount of foreign currency-denominated bonds, with a recent landmark Panda bond issuance – denominated in Chinese renminbi – attracting significant investor participation. This chapter contains an interview with Ramon S Monzon, President and CEO, Philippine Stock Exchange.
