The Casablanca Stock Exchange was established as long ago as 1929. At that time, it was known as the “Office de Compensation des Valeurs Mobilières” (Office for Clearing of Transferable Securities). The growing importance of the securities market and the introduction of foreign exchange controls prompted the authorities at that time to improve and regulate the Stock Exchange’s organisation and operations.

The market’s organisational shortcomings hindered however its attractiveness at a time when domestic investors showed a growing interest in stock market investment. To overcome such shortcomings, reforms were undertaken in 1967, providing Morocco’s financial markets with a well-organised legal and technical framework.

Following these reforms, in 1986, Morocco embarked on a Structural Adjustment Programme which was completed ten years later. This Programme enabled Morocco to consolidate its fundamentals and successfully bring under control its high level of debt and inflation. Seven years later, in 1993, another major set of market reforms was undertaken to complement and enhance previous measures with the enactment of fundamental laws, including the Société de Bourse des Valeurs de Casablanca (SBVC), a private company responsible for managing the Casablanca Stock Exchange and whose share capital is jointly-owned by authorised brokerage firms.

In 2000, the SBVC has changed name to become the Casablanca Stock Exchange, a joint stock company with a Board of Directors and a Supervisory Board.

Stocks and bonds are traded on BVC.
