Welcome to our 3rd issue of the FSDC E-Guardian, 2011.
In July and August we had a 4 weeks Capital Markets Programme that was organised to promote investor awareness of our capital markets. The programme included radio infomercials, community seminars and in-house RBF seminars and competitions.
In August, we organised the RBF Microfinance Village at the Hibiscus Festival in Suva and hosted microfinance entrepreneurs and institutions, commercial banks, unit trusts and other stakeholders in the Village. The Village added a different focus to the annual festival. The RBF Village was awarded a prize for the most entertaining booth by the Vodafone Hibiscus Committee.
In September, Future Forest Fiji launched an Initial Public Offering (IPO) and expects to raise at least $1m from the IPO. The company also plans to list on the SPSE before the year ends.
