Qatar Stock Exchange announced the introduction of Margin Trading at QSE and the start of application process to allow QSE members get licensed as Margin Lenders. Once a brokerage firm is licensed as a Margin Lender, it will be able to perform margin trading activity at Qatar Stock Exchange. Margin Trading will allow investors to purchase securities that are partially financed by a loan or credit facility made available by a Margin Lender, a Member licensed to provide Margin Trading services.

As part of QSE keenness to raise awareness among investors and market participants, it will hold a seminar on this new mechanism. Qatar Stock Exchange is calling upon investors and market participants to view the margin trading rules at the website of Qatar Financial Markets Authority as well as the market notice issued by Qatar Stock Exchange and posted on its website.
