The PFTS Stock Exchange is a leading stock exchange in Ukraine that for a long time (until 2006) legally was considered as a trading system, hence its name the First Stock Trading System (PFTS).

Approximately 220 companies are listed on the PFTS, with a total market capitalization around $140 billion. For comparison, United States New York Stock Exchange capitalization is worth $25 trillion.

The PFTS Stock Trading System has been in operation since 1996 and currently is the largest marketplace and self-regulatory organization in Ukraine’s stock market.

Originally it was the Association of the professional participants of the Ukraine stock market «Outside of Stock Exchange Share Trade System» (Ukrainian: Позабіржова Фондова Торговельна Система, ПФТС), registered at the end of 1995. In September, 1998 the name «First Stock Trade System» (Ukrainian: Перша Фондова Торговельна Система, ПФТС, PFTS) was accepted, effectively keeping the Ukrainian abbreviation of the name PFTS unchanged.
