Capital Markets

The Capital Markets in Mauritius is one of the most vibrant sectors of the economy and the country provides a dynamic debt and equity market. It is the second largest market in the African region.

Mauritius provides investors with a dynamic securities market and offers world class trading facilities. The trade of fixed interest securities and equity normally takes place through market intermediaries, regulated as Investment Dealers.

Coming a long way since its launch in 1989, the Stock Exchange of Mauritius (SEM) is today one of the precursors in sustainability in the African continent.

The SEM operates two markets:

  • The Official Market
  • The Development and Enterprise Market

In pursuit of its internationalisation strategy, the Mauritian capital markets is embracing multi-product and commodities platforms in addition to its equity-based platform.
