The Namibian Stock Exchange (NSX) walked away with the Financial Services Organisation of the Year award at the Africa and Middle East category at the Corporate LiveWire Global Awards 2017 as announced this week.
The Corporate LiveWire Global Awards celebrates the achievements of the most outstanding individuals, companies and organisations in the business community over the last 12 months.
Rising business trends in 2017 including the rise of crowdfunding and the importance of content marketing and SEO have been highlighted in the awards guide and have played a substantial part in business growth around the world.

“With the widespread implementation of the NamCode and the recent launch of King IV in South Africa we are already receiving comments on the way forward for the Namibian Corporate Governance landscape,” Bazuin added.
Each individual and company had been set under great scrutiny by the judging team setting its sights firmly on the most client-focused and dedicated teams and individuals.
