ASX joins in global push

from page 1

In fact, it is probably fair to say our exchange has been a leader in the establishment of prudential controls to regulate traders and investors. Some analysts have expressed reservations as to the gravitation towards large capitalisation stocks on a worldwide basis.

An ASX spokesman pointed out that this is a phenomenon that already occurs in each individual market with the top 100 or so stocks attracting far more by way of trade than other, smaller capitalisation stocks.

The establishment of a world market will do nothing other than to achieve this on a global basis.

As long as the same transparency of transactions in the Australian market is transferred to this world market, it appears there are enormous benefits to be achieved.

However, it will become more important for investors to access good advice when undertaking transactions.

It is difficult enough to research the companies listed on the ASX now, let alone now looking at a much larger universe of stocks.
