Regulatory Framework

The main law which governs all the activities between the Exchange and its members, the proceedings of the main Committee and its composition; the relationship between the Minister and the Exchange together with the relations between the Registrar, the exchange and members of the exchange is the Botswana Stock Exchange Act No 11 of 1994.

The members have promulgated Rules (Members Rules) which provide for the requirements to be fulfilled for the securities listed and trading on the Exchange. Members Rules provide as the main objective thereof, “to operate a Stock Exchange in Botswana with due regard to the public interest, and to maintain fair and efficient dealing in securities for the protection of investors and to regulate the affairs of members”.

In addition, the Exchange has a set of Listing Requirements which provide the pre-listing requirements and post listing requirements to be observed by the issuers of listed Securities. The emphasis is to make sure issuers disclose as much information to the public and investors so that the latter can make informed investment decisions.
