    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 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.
