About the stock exchange
Bahrain Bourse is a self-regulated multi-asset marketplace. Bahrain Bourse aims to offer to its investors, issuers, and intermediaries a comprehensive suite of exchange-related facilities including offering listing, trading, settlement, and depository services for various financial instruments. The exchange's history extends back to 1987, which marked the establishment of "Bahrain Stock Exchange (BSE)", the predecessor of "Bahrain Bourse (BHB)".  Since then, Bahrain Stock Exchange has achieved milestone successes, largely attributed to the support of the Government of Kingdom of Bahrain and the collaboration provided by its stakeholders. In 2010, Bahrain Bourse was established as a shareholding company to replace Bahrain Stock Exchange.
