Throughout its existence, the activity of the stock exchange was affected by the social-political events of the time, being closed during the First World War. After reopening, the Bucharest Stock Exchange went through a period of 7 years of significant growth, followed by a period of 7 years of accelerated decline.

The activity of the stock exchange was interrupted in 1948, with the establishment of the communist regime in Romania and the beginning of the nationalization of the economy. At that time, 93 companies listed shares and 77 fixed-income securities (bonds).

After almost 50 years, the Bucharest Stock Exchange was re-established in 1995, with the first trading session on 20 November 1995.

Subsequently, the Bucharest Stock Exchange has experienced continuous growth. In 2010, the Bucharest Stock Exchange listed on its own regulated market. In the same year, the BVB launched the alternative trading system for SMEs and start-ups looking for funding.

Some of the most important companies in Romania are traded on the BVB: OMV Petrom S.A., S.N.G.N. Romgaz S.A., Fondul Proprietatea, Banca Transilvania, Electrica and Transgaz.

The Bucharest Stock Exchange is currently building a competitive market in Central and Eastern Europe. The BVB offers financing opportunities for companies that want to attract capital market investment in Romania.

The BVB has seen an increase in capital flows from institutional and retail investors, both Romanian and international.

The Romanian capital market has positioned itself on an ambitious growth trajectory, and growth prospects are optimistic, given the declared intention to acquire the status of "emerging market" in the Morgan Stanley Capital International classification.
