Egyptian Stock Exchange head Atef Yassin
Cairo – Mohammed Abdullah
The head of the Egyptian Stock Exchange has told Arab Today he is waiting for the public prosecutor to make a decision on suspending assets belonging to senior figures from the ousted Muslim Brotherhood regime.
Atef Yassin said the prosecutor was analysing dealings with shares and bonds closely.
He asserted that the stock market would not be closed, stressing that Egyptian investors would be encouraged to invest despite the current political uncertainty. "Egypt’s stock market is open to all Egyptians regardless of their affiliations as one of the most important financial institutions in Egypt," he said.
Yassin reiterated his support for the principle of economic freedom. He also praised the awareness of Egyptian investors who have formed strong financial centres that led the market to achieve notable gains.
