Thai bourse to expand foreign fund base through U.S.A. roadshow

The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), together with Auerbach Grayson and KT Zmico Securities, will organize the roadshow “Thailand Conference,” in New York, the United States on October 24-25, aiming to showcase the readiness of the Thai capital market to take advantage of Southeast Asia’s economic growth and match 11 Thai listed companies with U.S. institutional investors.

The roadshow will be led by Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Kittiratt Na-Ranong, who will present the government’s policy and deliver a keynote speech on “Positioning Thailand for the Challenges in the Rotation World.”

SET President Charamporn Jotikasthira said: “The bourse will present the effectiveness of the Thai stock market in “Thailand Growth Opportunities” to fund managers by highlighting the readiness of the Thai capital market to benefit from the regional economic growth. We will also showcase the strength of Thai listed firms, which have proven to be resilient to market uncertainties, as well as the bourse’s development and new products. We will bring 11 medium- and large-sized firms which are on the radar of U.S. funds, from five industry groups, to present information directly to investors in one-on-one meetings. These firms include newly-listed NOK Airlines pcl (NOK) and MC Group pcl (MC).”

KT Zmico Executive Chairman Chaipatr Srivisarvacha, said: “The main objective of these two days is to showcase new growth opportunities to the U.S. investors. These are opportunities derived from structural transformation and new strategic undertaking in light of regional market integration. The formalization of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015 with its 600 million people, the arrival of new budding market like Myanmar, and increased infrastructure investment across Southeast Asia will bring untold excitement to the investment landscape in the region for years to come. The continuing success of Thailand as a country and an investment destination has an annualized broad indexed returned of 25 percent since early 2010.”

Auerbach Grayson & Company Chief Executive David Grayson said: “We are very honored to be co-sponsoring this event with the SET and KT ZMICO. Our clients are among the largest institutional investors in the United States and the response to this conference is very strong. Their interest demonstrates that global institutional investors are becoming more value oriented and Thailand has many well priced, well managed companies.”

The 11 companies participating in the roadshow are Bangchak Petroleum pcl (BCP), Bangkok Expressway pcl (BECL), Central Plaza Hotel pcl (CENTEL), GFPT pcl (GFPT), MCOT pcl (MCOT), MC Group pcl (MC), NOK Airlines pcl (NOK), Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding pcl (RATCH), Samart Corporation pcl (SAMART), Sansiri pcl (SIRI), Thaicom pcl (THCOM), with a combined market capitalization of THB 360 billion (approx. USD 11.6 billion) (as of October 18, 2013).

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
