About SEM:

 

The Stock Exchange of Mauritius Ltd (SEM)started its operations in July 1989 as a domestic equity-centric Exchange. SEM's transformative momentum took a new turn in 2010 when the Exchange undertook a fundamental shift of its strategic orientation, embarking with the internationalisation of its operational and regulatory framework. The outcome of this strategic shift has been quite compelling. Around 200 securities are listed on SEM, cutting across different asset-classes and issued by a diverse group of local, African and international issuers. SEM today boasts a streamlined listing regime catering for the specialist nature and requirements of a variety of asset classes. These cover equity products (ordinary/ preference shares), debt products (fixed income/floating rate debt/specialist debt products and Eurobonds), ETFs, ETNs, DRs and Structured Products. The above products are issued and listed by domestic Issuers, International Issuers, Investment entities, Specialist companies (including GBCs) and Public sector issuers.
