Lima Stock Exchange (BVL)

The Bolsa de Valores de Lima (BVL) is the primary stock exchange of Peru and was founded in 1861. More than 250 companies are listed on the BVL, and around 30 financial services providers participate in the exchange as brokers. Liquidity is ensured by acting market makers. The BVL is a member of FIAB.

In addition to providing a platform for the exchange of Peruvian stocks, the exchange also facilitates trade in securities issued outside of Peru. Contracts traded on the BVL include stocks, funds, warrants, participation certificates and bonds (corporate, government, mortgage, subordinated).

Indexes which track BVL performance include the IGBVL index and the S&P/BVL Peru General Index (SPBLPGPT).
