ICF is working with the Government of Tunisia to strengthen professional training and investor education capacities of the Tunis Stock Market. This initiative will broaden the investor base and encourage more enterprises, especially small and medium ones, to get listed on the Tunis Stock Exchange so that they can use the capital market as an alternate source of funding.
Already, 12 IPOs have registered in 2013, (compared to 2 in 2012, and 1 in 2011). More than 90 professionals have been trained in Corporate Finance, Asset Management and Islamic Finance. 60 out of 14 candidates have passed the CISI certificate for Corporate Finance.
