Brief history

 » Bolsa Electrónica de Chile

Since its creation in 1989, Bolsa Electrónica de Chile has been a pioneer in innovation at the service of the financial industry. It was the first stock exchange to operate online and remotely for more than 30 years ago, and since then, it has promoted the development of the local and regional stock market, introducing new products and services to support stockbrokers for the benefit of investors in our country.

Bolsa Electrónica de Chile generates negotiation instances and facilitates financial intermediation through different activities such as the purchase and sales of financial instruments. Additionally, it allows buyers and sellers to contact each other in order to finance different types of businesses, providing legal security in accordance with current regulations.

One of the key milestones in the history of Bolsa Electrónica de Chile is the strategic alliance with SIF ICAP that allows the application in Chile of the current transaction system and its derivatives, known as Datatec.

In 2011, the BEC took another significant step in its expansion, reaching an agreement with the North American Nasdaq stock Exchange, whose technology is used by more than 70 countries around the world. With this, Bolsa Electrónica de Chile becomes the stock exchange with the highest processing speed in Latin America. The alliance with Nasdaq has contributed to remain at the forefront of technology while incorporating, over time, new services that are available to the local stock market.

In 2019, it signed a cooperation agreement with Sonda to integrate the RealAISCdB platform, a Sonda tool aimed at managing stockbrokers’ back office with the Electronic Stock Exchange (BEC) technological systems.

In recent years, BEC has promoted competition and transparency in the Chilean stock market, promoting initiative such as the interconnection of stock exchange at local and regional level.

Throughout its history, Bolsa Electrónica de Chile has advanced in line with its digital DNA. The health crisis associated with Covid – 19 has demonstrated its ability to continue delivering a first-rate service, 100% remote, with all of its staff working from home. The ability to adapt to exceptional situations such as a pandemic motivated Nasdaq to recognize Bolsa Electrónica as a global example in the stock market.
