Thai bourse diversifies its way to growth

Exchange aims to double its market cap by 2020

The Stock Exchange of Thailand in Bangkok

Thanks to its exceptionally large base of retail investors, the Stock Exchange of Thailand boasts the highest liquidity of any bourse in Southeast Asia. But the exchange wants to bring in a wider range of players, including more institutional investors, to achieve the ambitious goal of doubling its market cap by 2020.

To hit that target, the SET will launch a new marketplace for startups by the end of the third quarter of 2017, in addition to its first-tier SET board and the smaller cap Market for Alternative Investment.
