The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) is a market of choice for local and international investors wanting exposure to the capital markets in South Africa and the African continent. It has operated as a market place for the trading of financial securities for over 130 years. In this time, the JSE has evolved from a traditional floor based equities trading market to a modern securities exchange providing fully electronic trading, clearing and settlement in equities, financial and agricultural derivatives and other associated instruments and has extensive surveillance capabilities. It is also a major provider of financial information. In everything it does, the JSE strives to be a responsible corporate citizen, contributing to the growth of not only South Africa’s economy but the vast continent.
