Interview with Ayxa Jorge Musa
Mercado de Valores
Mercado de Valores de Costa Rica, Puesto de Bolsa SA, is a leading company specializing in stock market brokerage and financial advice. The company was founded in 1976 by Mr. Guillermo Masís Dibiasi when there was not yet a Stock Exchange in the country. His vision of developing the company led him to go one step further by becoming a founding member of the National Securities Exchange in 1976 and of the Costa Rica Electronic Securities Exchange in 1993.
Currently, Mercado de Valores has more than 42 years of experience in stock market brokerage, having a privileged place in the Costa Rican financial landscape for its career, experience, and leadership. The company stands out for providing personalized financial advice and having a Board of Directors with extensive knowledge of the market, both in legal and banking areas. It is a business group with plenty of experience, complemented by the management group that makes up the company, with over 25 years of experience in the business.
