Published in Daily News Egypt on 04 - 08 - 2019

The higher turnover of the Egyptian Exchange (EGX) in July and the improving purchases of institutions helped EFG Hermes (through Financial Brokerage Group and Hermes Securities Brokerage) continue their top performance among brokerage companies in this period, as the market share of the firm rises to 33.5% of total transactions.
EFG Hermes's Financial Brokerage Group ranked first among brokerage firms with total transactions of EGP 8.2bn through 31,300 operations, taking a market share of 26.8%, sup- ported by taking the lion's share of institutions' trading for two months in a row, where the company's trans- actions for institutions reached EGP 8.04bn, accounting for 48.8% of institutions' deals in July.

Meanwhile, Hermes Securities Brokerage continued in third position with 45,400 transactions through 770.1m shares valued at EGP 2bn, ac- counting for 6.7% of the market trading, supported by its dominance over retail business, with a market share of 12.7% in July, valued at EGP 1.8bn.

Cherif Hechmat, managing director of Arqaam Securities Brokerage, said that the company aims to be among the top three positions in August, through expanding in the institutional market and well-qualified individuals with in- vestment portfolios similar to some of big institutions, using the company's Dubai branch, which helps them control nearly 80% of the Gulf market shares.
