The African Securities Exchanges Association (ASEA)  

The African Securities Exchanges Association (ASEA) is a non-profit organization that was established in Kenya on the 13th of November 1993, with the aim of establishing systematic mutual cooperation and exchange of information among its members.

The association started with Nairobi Stock Exchange as the first member in 1993, followed by Mauritius, Uganda and Dar-es-Salam Stock Exchanges in the nineties. The association is currently represented by 27 exchanges.

ASEA is aiming for mutual cooperation, exchange of information, experiences and materials together with joint training programs between its African member countries.

EGX has a prominent role on the African front and has spared no efforts to support the African Capital Markets. Consequently, EGX was elected as a Chairman of the African Securities Exchanges Association for two consecutive terms since September 2005. Additionally, the General Assembly Meeting elected EGX as a member of ASEA’s Executive Committee for the third time in a row in November 2016.

Since that; EGX was elected and selected to have a seat on ASEA EXCO.

The Egyptian Exchange (EGX) had a significant contribution in promoting and reinforcing the role of the association as a central reference point for the African countries. EGX is as well a member of the ASEA Sustainability Working Group.
