About CoSSE

The Committee of SADC Stock Exchanges (CoSSE) was established in 1997 and is a collective body of the various stock exchanges in the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

Although CoSSE is essentially a private sector association, it forms part of SADC structures as it has a formal status under the SADC Finance and Investment Protocol (FIP).

The objectives of CoSSE are as follows:

  • To make the securities markets of SADC exchanges more attractive to both regional and international investors;
  • To increase market liquidity and enhance trading in various securities and financial instruments;
  • To promote the development of efficient, fair and transparent securities markets within the SADC region;
  • To encourage the transfer of securities markets’ intellectual capital and technical expertise among member countries of CoSSE;
  • To encourage interaction among market participants;
  • To encourage the development of a harmonised securities markets environment within the SADC region;
  • To maximise co-operation among CoSSE members.
