With the aim of breathing new life into the stock market and helping to build a more attractive financial center, Bourse de Casablanca's Roadmap sets out to build a new market architecture designed to make it an integrated African financial hub. The goal is to facilitate access to capital and meet the needs of international issuers and investors.
With the support of all the stakeholders (supervisory authority, regulators and market professionals), Bourse de Casablanca is following three main development lines:
To build an efficient infrastructure through the transformation of Bourse de Casablanca into a stock exchange group, the establishment of a clearing house and a company managing the futures market and the use of a resilient, multi-product technological platform with integrated risk management.
To better contribute to the financing of the economy by stimulating the offer of paper on the ""Equity"" and ""Bond"" markets, reinforcing the attractiveness of Bourse de Casablanca to local and international investors and accelerating the development of the market liquidity.
To expand international reach with the listing of foreign securities, improved connectivity with international financial markets and the creation of a 100% African fund.
Created in 1929 as a clearing office, the status and organization of Bourse de Casablanca have undergone several structural reforms. As such, in 1995, a management company was instituted to which the management of the Stock Exchange was conceded, in application of a schedule of conditions approved by the Minister in charge of Finance.
This overhaul of the status of the Stock Exchange is part of a global approach to modernize the financial market, initiated in 1993, and which set among its objectives to provide the Stock Exchange with an organizational structure and modern means in order to strengthen its role in financing the economy.
In 2016, the last Law 19-14 relating to the Stock Exchange, brokerage companies and investment advisers, came to modernize the legislative framework governing the stock market with a better organization of markets and compartments with in particular a so-called alternative market dedicated to SMEs with adapted and lightened access and reporting conditions.
