Formed in 1887 during the first South African gold rush, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) is one of the world’s 20 largest exchanges by market capitalisation ($1,007bn at end-2013) and the largest exchange in Africa. Following the first legislation covering financial markets in 1947, the JSE joined the World Federation of Exchanges in 1963 and upgraded to an electronic trading system in the early 1990s. The bourse demutualised and listed on its own exchange in 2005.

The JSE acquired the South African Futures Exchange (SAFEX) in 2001 and the Bond Exchange of South Africa (BESA) in 2009.

Stock, funds, bonds, and derivatives are traded on the JSE.
