Market capitalization split by economic sector
In law terms Bolsa de Valores de Quito has got three special relevant moments. The first one was related to its first foundation, which took place in 1969 as Corporation, as an initiative of Comisión de Valores – Corporación Financiera Nacional (as named at that moment).
Twenty years later, in 1993, the new Capital Market Law, restructured Ecuadorian Capital Market establishing that exchanges should be transformed into non profit civil corporations. That’s why since May, 1994, the Exchange became Corporación Civil Bolsa de Valores de Quito, considering this fact as its second foundation.
Clearing, settlement and depositary services
Bolsa de Valores de Quito provides these services through a third-party agreement with two institutions, Decevale and DCV, which are subject to the regulations established by Bolsa de Valores de Quito for such purpose.
All the transactions must be settled and completed by private brokerage firms or public sector institutions under the terms and conditions set forth in settlement contracts and transactional system records.
Once a transaction is closed, the settlement system will generate a settlement invoice containing, among other data, net value of purchase and sale transactions, involved brokerage firms, name of broker-dealer, and so on.
Pursuant to an Internal Revenue Service resolution, settlement shall be considered to be an invoice. Therefore, it shall also be governed by the provisions included in the Rules on Sales and Tax Withholding Certificates.
BVQ shall settle stock-exchange transactions based on the positive or negative balance resulting from subtracting the total value of purchases and sales executed on value date.
The settlement process shall be conducted through the magnetic funds transfer system between the BVQ account with the Central Bank of Ecuador and the current accounts of brokerage firms or public institutions within the financial system.
Settlement is performed on the basis of prior calculation of net value, which takes into account the cash value of transactions, commissions, and other items that may be deducted from the latter.
BVQ may perform trade clearing through the following mechanisms:
a. Delivery versus payment under gross settlement: Clearing is performed through simultaneous cash and securities debits from and credits to the accounts of buying and selling brokers.
b. Securities delivery under daily net settlement: Clearing is performed through delivery of traded securities from selling to buying broker, and determination of daily net cash value on behalf or for the benefit of each brokerage firm or public sector institution. The daily net cash value shall result from clearing all the transactions to be performed or executed on such date, and it shall be paid through a disbursement or charge, from the BVQ account.
c. Direct delivery of securities and funds: Delivery is made by the parties directly involved in a securities and cash transaction, and through a different mechanism from those mentioned in the foregoing paragraphs. This type of clearing shall be applicable under prior request of and specific authorization from BVQ, and it shall require compliance with expressly stating that securities were received to the satisfaction of said parties. This mechanism is used in cross trades, and with deferred payment terms.
