Financial Market Innovations: The introduction of a special market on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to receive financing (BEAM) represents an effort to bolster financial support for smaller companies, enhancing their access to capital. BEAM offers SMEs a platform to access public capital markets, which traditionally have been more accessible to larger corporations. By lowering entry barriers and providing a more tailored regulatory framework, BEAM facilitates SMEs’ efforts to raise funds through equity financing.
