  • Fast Track

    Fast Track allows international companies who have been listed for at least 18 months on another global exchange to accelerate their secondary listing on the JSE. A Fast Track listing is a quicker, easier and less admin intense process.

    *All fast track / secondary listings are subject to a 50% discount on JSE annual listing fees.​

  • Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC)

    In many ways a SPAC is an alternative to raising capital for acquisitions. This capital raising vehicle is a publicly traded shell with a specific mandate to acquire or merge with other companies or assets.​

  • Exchange Traded Products

    Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) ​
    ETFs​ are list​ed investment products that track the performance of a group or 'basket' of shares, bonds or commodities. An ETF​ can be bought or sold in the same way as an ordinary share.

    Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs)​
    ​ETNs​ are exchange-traded debt instruments that give investors access to a wide spectrum of assets.

  • Empowerment Segment

    The JSE demonstrates commitment to transformation through our Empowerment Segment​, which applies a reduced fee structure for both the BEE share ownership scheme and the investor. BEE share schemes afford previously disadvantaged South Africans the opportunity to own a stake in a company, and participate in its growth.​

  • Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)

    ​Property loan stock companies and property unit trusts that are listed on the JSE can be converted into REIT structures​. These offer investors exposure to real estate properties and mortgages through a JSE-listed instrument. The result is exposure to the property market without the large initial capital outlay.

  • Depository Receipts (DR’s)

    DR'S ​are not actual shares, but receipts representing shares, they are handled and traded just like shares, and offer the same economic, corporate and voting rights enjoyed by an investor holding underlying shares directly.​

  • Structured Products

    Warrants are derivative security instruments that give the holder of the warrant the right, but not obligation, to buy (Call Warrants) or sell (Put Warrants) an underlying asset, at an agreed price on or before an agreed expiry date.

    Asset Backed Securities (ABS):
    An ABS is a financial security backed by a loan, lease or receivable against assets other than real estate and mortgage-backed securities. For investors, ABS is an alternative to investing in corporate debt.
