BSEs shift of expiry of weekly contracts from Thursday to Monday has been very well received by the market players bring a new wave of possibilities for the growth of BSEs equity derivative segment. The growth of turnover in equity segment by 39% in this quarter over corresponding quarter previous year is highly encouraging. Coupled with the focus on ?best price execution? of trades by trading members, the prospects for growth in equity segment in BSE also look brighter. Introduction of e-KYC services in the mutual fund segment as a value added service as well as introduction of health and life insurance segment in the insurance broking entity demonstrates the relentless drive by BSE to provide more and better services to its stakeholders and public. The achievement of total turnover of USD 1 trillion by India INX is another feather in the cap of the BSE group. BSE remains committed to continue to explore growth opportunities and innovate in the exchange and electronic distribution ecosystems.?
