Stock Market Guide to African Stock Exchanges

As the largest stock exchange in Africa and the 16th largest stock exchange in the world, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) is probably the first one that comes to mind when one thinks about stock markets in Africa. However, just because this stock market is the largest and most successful on the continent, doesn’t mean it is the only one. The Cairo and Alexandria Stock Exchanges have been growing steadily since the early 1900s and now enjoys a sizable number of listed companies and good stock trade. The Ghana Stock Exchange is somewhat smaller but is steadily growing and will likely soon catch up to its contemporaries. Mauritius is well known as a tropical paradise holiday destination, however even this beautiful island has thriving businesses and a stock exchange - the Mauritius Stock Exchange. There are also several other stock exchanges in Africa and we plan to incorporate those not already mentioned on in the future.
