BSE, Asia's oldest stock exchange, has become the first Indian exchange to be recognized as a Designated Offshore Securities Market (DOSM) by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The DOSM status allows the sale of securities to U.S. investors through the trading venue of BSE without registration of such securities with the U.S. SEC and thus eases the trades by U.S. investors in India.
BSE becomes the first exchange in India to receive the DOSM recognition.
