The Budapest Stock Exchange (BSE) stock index rose on rising turnover this week, with the BUX closing at 39,846.64 points on Friday, up 1.31% or 515.31 points from the previous week's close, the state news agency MTI.
Turnover rose to HUF 46.99 billion, up from HUF 41.02 billion the previous week, with leading shares rising.
In a summary sent to MTI, Equilor Investment Plc. said that the BUX closed the week in positive territory, as global recession fears subsided in the second half of the week and a more optimistic international investor sentiment prevailed in the markets.
They stressed that the Hungarian forint (HUF) has had a "tough week" and the 200 basis points hike by the Hungarian National Bank on Thursday was not enough to boost the currency.
OTP has announced that it will issue green bonds, with a total value of EUR 400 million, with a maturity date of 13 July, according to Tuesday's information. The bonds will have a maturity of 3 years and will be callable after 2 years, Equilor reports.

Mol filed the lawsuit against the Croatian state in December 2013, and the Croatian state is now considering possible legal action; it remains interested in buying back INA, according to Equilor's summary.
