Capital market formation faces a number of issues: small quantity of transactions and low liquidity; undeveloped informational, depositary and clearing networks; oblique governmental intervention by means of Nationwide Financial institution of Georgia (industrial financial institution securities management) and Ministry of Finance (management of non-bank monetary establishments); excessive stage of threat and the absence of enterprise ethics. Apart from the economic system is characterised by instability not absolutely following free-market guidelines and regardless of current growth in commerce volumes, the extent of safety emissions remains to be low. Resulting from these causes capital market remains to be weak and doesn’t fulfill wants of the economic system.

The success of capital markets relies upon strongly on an acceptable and efficient functioning of joint inventory firms. Even supposing at present their quantity within the economic system is 1773 forming 2% of all authorized individuals registered on the tax division, GSE couldn’t rework into the choice to banking sector and the technique of environment friendly fund-raising. Georgian enterprise surroundings shouldn’t be but prepared for participation in capital markets. The rationale for that is that the managers lack the data of capital market capabilities and fail to make use of all of the fund-raising advantages it offers. Due to this fact the degrees of safety emissions and change actions stay low. Presently Georgian monetary system follows German mannequin, the place financial institution loans are extremely favored at company stage. Since additional enchancment of company governance is among the many nation’s principal pursuits, the Company Governance coaching program was organized by GSE management that goals to extend the attention of advantages an organized inventory change offers.

It’s price noting that mass privatization scheme that was carried out in Georgia didn’t function an element for triggering improvement of inventory exchanges within the nation. Privatization vouchers weren’t listed at inventory exchanges and transfers of possession rights have been principally performed by means of particular person direct transactions. Ultimately, roughly 1300 joint inventory firms and half 1,000,000 shareholders emerged; nevertheless the function of capital markets on this course of was minimal. Even on the second wave of privatization capital markets have been neglected of the method and main a part of privatization was performed primarily by means of auctions, buy-outs and direct-sale strategies. Solely in 2002 first medium-scale transaction on the sale of 36646 shares (10148 GEL) was made on inventory change.

Resumed privatization course of uncovers new prospects for Georgian securities market. It’s anticipated that new wave of privatization will set off GSE, since these days holding of privatization auctions at GSE is backed by the enough legislative bases. As well as, there have been substantial international direct funding inflows in earlier years and even bigger inflows are anticipated to happen subsequent 12 months (approx. 2 billion US {dollars}). It’s strongly believed that this can considerably contribute to the event of the capital market and enchancment of funding local weather within the nation. To satisfy new demand the buying and selling classes should be held each day.
