The Belgian Association of Stock Exchange Members (BASEM) – in French “L’Association Belge des Membres de la Bourse (ABMB)”; in Dutch “Belgische Vennootschap van Beursleden (BVBL)” – is the professional association that mainly represents the stockbroking firms established in Belgium.
A stockbroking firm is a recognized institution that operates in the financial markets on behalf of its clients through the transmission and receipt of orders. It may also offer various services such as investment advice, portfolio management guidance or financial analysis.
Other financial intermediaries such as credit institutions and authorized market players can also join the Association.
The BASEM is a sub-association of Febelfin, the Belgian Federation of the financial sector.
