The Botswana Stock Exchange (BSE), located in the capital Gaborone, is the country's national stock exchange founded in 1989 to operate and regulate the equities and fixed interest securities market. The Exchange, which provides a gateway for raising capital and accessing investment opportunities in Botswana, is widely reckoned one of Africa's best performing stock exchanges, averaging 24% aggregate return in the past decade. The Botswana Stock Exchange is the third largest stock exchange in Southern Africa in terms of market capitalization.

The BSE, as a statutory body, puts in the effort to maintain a fair and efficient market by means of its surveillance and compliance committees, and the Botswana Stock Exchange Act No 11 of 1994 which ensures the operation of the capital market with the highest due regard to the public interest, protection of investors, and regulation of the affairs of its dealing members. The BSE Domestic Companies Index, which tracks indigenous companies, is the benchmark index for the Botswana stock market. The BSE Foreign Companies Index tracks the performance of shares of foreign companies that are listed on the Exchange.

      Sorry, no company by the name of “Invest Solar” has ever been listed on the BSE.

      You need a custodian account with a Botswana market dealer to buy shares from outside the country. Or you can check with your local banks if they offer depositary receipt services for listed shares on the Botswana exchange.

      I add them manually, but it's already done. It will sort of activate itself once it receives trading data which is likely to occur at close of trading tomorrow.

      Looking forward to the new contributors :)

      That's what that I've heard and read so far too. There's yet to come any official statement from the BSE regarding the company's application status that it filed 2 weeks ago. It appears increasingly unlikely that it will happen this month.

      Sometimes there is a delay in the data feed from our providers. However, in this case, it got updated just before I could post this.
