The Romanian stock market was last year promoted to secondary emerging market by FTSE Russell, while the most important markets in the region are emerging advanced, and Poland is a developed market. For now, the BSE has few companies included in the FTSE indices, and their weight is relatively low, but there are prospects for improvement. Still, listings of major companies are rare, meaning that the supply available to institutional investors (mutual funds, pension funds) has been shrinking constantly. On the other hand, over the last year, an increasing number of entrepreneurs have resorted to financing through the mechanisms of the Multilateral Trading System of the Bucharest Stock Exchange, and the number of active investors on the BSE has increased. All of these changed during the Covid-19 lockdown, event which changed behaviors, modified and accelerated trends, reset economies.
