Issuer Regulation

The stock exchange is basically a market for raising capital through issuance of securities. It provides a link between economic agents in need of finance and investors seeking profitable investment opportunities. This process involves the issuing, listing and trading of securities. Companies that are in need of finance would normally issue securities on the exchange and investors would buy them as an investment.

The ESE provides a regulated marketplace for buying and selling of shares at prices determined by supply and demand, notwithstanding other macroeconomic fundamentals.

The Eswatini Stock Exchange is a stock exchange licensed in terms of the Securities Act 2010 and regulated by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA).

The ESE aims to provide the right kind of products to suit investors and issuers so that it meets growing customer demands and challenges of the globalisation of financial markets. This can be achieved through product innovation and diversification.

The Eswatini Stock Exchange equity & debt markets cater for the needs of small and medium-sized, and large companies (we call them issuers).
