Santiago Bourse Sees Derivatives as Answer to Slump in Trading

  • Options to lure foreigners to local market, chairman says
  • Chile's stock trading slump is biggest in the region

The Santiago exchange is planning to create stock options for the first time to attract foreign investors as trading volumes slump to a 10-year low, Chairman Juan Andres Camus said.

"Our goal is to boost liquidity, and foreign investors are the ones that can do that," Camus said in an interview in Santiago.
