The Tunis Stock Exchange (BVMT) was established in 1969. At that time, the role of the stock market in financing the economy remained limited or insignificant because of the dominance of the state and banks in financing the economy. This has resulted in significant levels of money creation and inflation. The market capitalization accounted for only 1% of GDP in 1986, in summary the exchange was not representative of the country's economy and did not participate in corporate finance.

In 1988, reforms were initiated in order to establish a modern legal framework for the financial market to contribute to the financing of the economy, with the aim of modernize and strengthening the role of the financial market.

In 1994, a major reform was adopted on the reorganization of the financial market to meet the highest international standards. And the Conseil du Marché Financier (CMF) was created, as administrative authority responsible for the protection of savings invested in securities on the stock exchange and other financial products, and the organization and supervision of the functioning of the market.

Stocks, bonds and funds are traded on BVMT.
