The Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) reported record trading last month (November) and saw a whopping 3.49bn shares turnover.
This beat the previous monthly record from November 2016 of 1.33 billion shares.
In the year to date, the CSE has traded 13.03bn shares of listed companies, far exceeding last year’s record of 6.43bn shares, and so far this year the exchange has seen a total value traded of $4.74 billion - the previous annual record was $1.55 billion traded in 2016.
November 28 this year was the single day record for share volume, number of trades and total value.
During that month, the exchange welcomed seven new companies and three companies that underwent a fundamental change transaction.
In terms of corporate finance, CSE-listed companies raised more than $700 million in 2017 as a result of more than 400 transactions.
“A number of industry sectors have clearly caught the attention of the trading and investing communities interested in entrepreneurial companies”, said Richard Carleton, the chief executive of the CSE.
"We are delighted to see that the hard work of our issuer companies and the CSE team is paying off to the degree that it has over the last several weeks.
"With a strong group of prospective issuers in its pipeline, we are confident that the CSE will continue to bring compelling investment opportunities to investors in the coming months."
