MNBʼs site for investors draws 14,000 visitors
A website that allows clients of investment companies doing business in Hungary to check their securities and equities account statements against data compiled by the market regulator has logged 14,000 visitors since its launch at the beginning of February, the National Bank of Hungary (MNB) said yesterday.
The data available to clients on the MNBʼs newly established “ESZLA” platform includes a cash account balance, name and volume of securities, settlement currency and nominal value of fixed-income assets. Clients that discover discrepancies between their account statement and data in the ESZLA platform may take the matter up with their investment service provider or indicate the problem to the MNB, either with or without anonymity.
The MNB noted that about 15% of ESZLA visitors choose the platformʼs English language option and about 5% log in from abroad.
