2.6. Shareholder education programme
In 2013, in response to a proposal made by certain
shareholders, BME launched its Shareholder Education
Programme. Under the initiative, which aims to help
non-controlling shareholders better understand the
workings of the financial world, these shareholders can
access specific and free learning modules taught by
highly qualified experts.
The modules included in the Shareholder Education
Programme are specifically designed for non-controlling
shareholders with little knowledge of financial markets.
In 2013, two- and three-hour classroom courses were
held at BME’s facilities at the Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia
and Bilbao stock exchanges.
At the end of each session, BME shareholders participat-
ing in Shareholder Education Programme courses were
able to share their feedback and to submit any ideas and
concerns. Surveys of participants revealed a satisfaction
rate of 4 out of 5,that is, 80%.
