Non-resident portfolio investors have to open a Non-resident Investors Taka Account (NITA) with any authorized dealer in Bangladesh funding the purchase and easy repatriation of the sales and income proceeds.
Securities can be purchased only through a member/registered broker of the stock exchange. However, public issues not yet listed in a stock exchange can be bought directly from the issuing company.
For the purpose of trading securities, investors need to open a Security Account/Trading Account with stock brokers listed with the exchanges. Funds from NITA can be used to purchase shares and securities listed in a stock exchange. The balances in this account are freely remittable abroad in foreign exchange.
