BAHREIN STOCK EXCHANGE
BARHEIN

It was back in 1920 that the first branch of a commercial bank opened its doors in Bahrain, the first to do so in the region, in order to facilitate the business community at that time.  By 1957, Bahrain had its first public shareholding company – the National Bank of Bahrain.  However, it was not until the late 1970s and early 1980s that Bahrain realized there was a growing need for an organized stock market, due to the growth provided by the oil price boom in the region. 
As a result, the Government, in cooperation with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), prepared a feasibility study highlighting the importance of establishing an official stock market in Bahrain.  So in 1987, Amiri Decree No. 4 was issued, establishing the Bahrain Stock Exchange (BSE), which officially commenced operations on 17th June 1989 with 29 companies listed on the Exchange
