Capital Markets

Morocco Capital Markets

The Casablanca Stock Exchange (CSE) was off to a good start in 2016, and in June saw its largest initial public offering (IPO) in eight years. However, the bourse’s all-share index remains below the levels seen before the global financial crisis, as do IPO and trading activity more generally, and it seems likely to be some time before these return to pre-crisis levels. Nevertheless, the coming months and years will see a wide range of reforms applied across the kingdom’s capital markets, including the launch of new exchanges and a variety of products, all of which should help to boost the CSE’s substantial potential.

This chapter contains interviews with Nezha Hayat, Chairperson, Moroccan Capital Markets Authority; Nikhil Rathi, CEO, London Stock Exchange; and Younes Benjelloun, Partner and CEO, CFG Bank.
