Bucharest Stock Exchange

With history dated back to 1839, when commodities-trade exchanges were established, stock exchange activity was affected throughout its existence by the social and political events of the time. Reestablished in 1995, after almost 50 years of suspension following the establishment of the communist regime, the Bucharest Stock Exchange has developed continuously and nowadays it is the main stock exchange in Romania.

The Bucharest Stock Exchange (BVB) falls under the regulation of The Financial Supervisory Authority (ASF). ASF was established as an autonomous, specialized, with legal status, independent, self-financed administrative authority, exercising its duties by taking over and reorganizing all duties and powers of the National Securities Commission (CNVM), the Insurance Supervisory Commission (CSA) and the Private Pension System Supervisory Commission (CSSPP).
