Once again, the capital market of Bangladesh has written its name as the best in the world. The Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) ranked the best capital market in the world in May this year, surpassing all other capital markets in the world. 

According to a recent report in Frontiers journal, during the second wave of the coronavirus, i.e. last May, DSE investors received a return of 9.4 percent, as a result, DSE has risen to the top of the list of the best capital markets.

It also said that Pakistan received a return of 8.5 percent, Vietnam 7.2 percent, China 6.2 percent, Philippines 5.3 percent, Kazakhstan 4.7 percent, Sri Lanka 2.5 percent, Thailand 0.6 percent, and Indonesia received 0.3 percent. 

Earlier in September and October last year, the DSE came up on the list of the best capital markets in the world in terms of returns. As a result, DSE rose to the top of the world’s best capital markets for the third time.

According to capital market analysts, the capital market has returned to a positive trend since the new commission headed by Professor Shibli Rubayat-ul-Islam took office. Domestic and foreign investors are flocking to the market. As a result, the market index has set a record of exceeding 6,000 points.

As the market gets better, investors also get better returns. Besides, the present commission has taken various initiatives for the development of the market – which have become quite effective.
