Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE) has launched a new and high-performing trading platform built on the same advanced technology used by many global capital markets.

The new trading platform provides innovative, robust, and scalable solutions that align with the advanced financial market technologies utilized by the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG).

This move is part of QSE’s strategic plan aimed at transforming Doha into a leading investment hub in the region, as per the statement.

“The newly launched trading system plays a vital role in boosting market confidence and elevating the performance of available investment services and products. The Qatar Stock Exchange is working towards enhancing its liquidity by strengthening the maturity and development of our financial markets, thereby supporting Qatar’s strategy to diversify the national economy. This includes providing market participants and investors with a wide range of investment opportunities, enabling them to access new and diverse financial instruments to manage risks and capitalize on market movements.”

Further, this achievement represents a significant leap forward in developing the Qatar Stock Exchange by establishing the foundations to achieve international recognition following the best practices and global standards.
