Uganda Securities Exchange

The Uganda Securities Exchange (USE) is the principal stock exchange of Uganda. It was founded in June 1997. The USE is operated under the jurisdiction of Uganda's Capital Markets Authority, which in turn reports to the Bank of Uganda, Uganda's central bank.

The exchange's doors opened to trading in January 1998. At the time, the exchange had just one listing, a bond issued by the East African Development Bank. Trading was limited to only a handful of trades per week.

As of June 2011, the USE trades fourteen (14) listed local and East African companies and has started the trading of fixed income instruments. The exchange, which is open five days a week, is a member of the African Stock Exchanges Association. Two new listings are expected by the end of Q1:2012.

The USE operates in close association with the Dar-es-Salaam Stock Exchange in Tanzania and the Nairobi Stock Exchange in Kenya and plans are underway to integrate the three to form a single East African bourse.

Famous quotes containing the word exchange:

    So long as the law considers all these human beings, with beating hearts and living affections, only as so many things belonging to the master—so long as the failure, or misfortune, or imprudence, or death of the kindest owner, may cause them any day to exchange a life of kind protection and indulgence for one of hopeless misery and toil—so long it is impossible to make anything beautiful or desirable in the best-regulated administration of slavery.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)
