SMEHA requests equal participation of Greek investors
The Association of Members of the Athens Exchanges (SMEHA) on Wednesday, once again, requested the lifting of capital controls to allow Greek investors to participate in a round of share capital increase plans unveiled by Greek banks. SMEHA also urged Greek banks to find ways to allow the participation of domestic investors in their capital boosting schemes.
Spyros Kiritsis, president of SMEHA, in a statement, said there must be equal opportunities for Greek investors and stressed that the current operation of the stock market was distorted and not equal for Greek investors compared with foreign investors.
He noted that the experience accumulated over the past months dismissed concern of a large capital outflow abroad from a free operation of the stock market.
