For nearly twenty years, the Budapest Stock Exchange has held an annual ceremony, the “BÉT Legek” (Best of BSE) Gala, to recognise the best performances of the domestic capital market. A panel consisting of the members of the Stock Exchange Advisory Board decides on award recipients. In most of the categories, winners are selected on the basis of a quantitative methodology (for example, turnover data). In the case of the Online Trading Platform of the Year and the Financial Literacy Award, the winner is chosen after evaluating the entries received and - it the case of the former - on the basis of user ratings as well.
On the the most important events of the Budapest Stock Exchange is the Best of the BSE Awards Gala, where the Exchange recognises outstanding results of the previous year. By giving out the awards at the Best of BSE Gala to kick off the year, the BSE evaluates the preceding year and ceremonially launches the next.
