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.

    Madume, I wish to know whether an investor is able to trade online through a broker, meaning that the trader buys the shares themselves. The shares are then deposited into the account immediately after the trade?

      You can trade your shares through broker. You can only commission broker to sell for you, you don't have the freedom to wake up and start trading right off. You must pass through a broker.

      If you want a complete control over your assets like buying any time of the day and selling whenever price is high to take out your profits, I would suggest to start small small investing in cryptocurrency. Keep an eye on the small coins (Altcoins).

      While there is no gainsaying the fact that Crypto is volatile, you can monitor movement on your app and start will little money.

      Would like to start today, WhatsApp+2348027024054.

      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.
