Namibian Stock Exchange clinches award at LiveWire Global event

The Namibian Stock Exchange (NSX) walked away with the Financial Services Organisation of the Year award in the Africa and Middle East category at the Corporate LiveWire Global Awards 2017, as announced earlier this week.

The Corporate LiveWire Global Awards celebrate the achievements of the most outstanding individuals, companies and organisations in the business community over the last 12 months.

Rising business trends in 2017 including the rise of crowdfunding and the importance of content marketing and SEO have been highlighted in the awards guide and have played a substantial part in business growth around the world.

Speaking to the Economist, NSX CEO, Tiaan Bazuin said his firm is very pleased with the recognition as the award is from a legal publication and largely based on the work the NSX did drafting and launching the NamCode. This is the corporate governance code launched in 2014.

With the widespread implementation of the NamCode and the recent launch of King IV in South Africa we are already receiving comments on the way forward for the Namibian Corporate Governance landscape,” Bazuin added.

Each individual and company had been set under great scrutiny by the judging team setting its sights firmly on the most client-focused and dedicated teams and individuals.

The judging panel for the Global awards included Maxim Behar (Founder of M3 Communication Inc), Emma – Jane Packe (Managing Director at the Supper Club), Urs Haeusler (DealMarket) and Osmaan Mahmood (Founder and CEO of Fenice Media Ltd), as well as the in-house team at Corporate LiveWire.
