The conference, now in its third year, will be held on March 8 in Gaborone. Vice President, Mokgweetsi Masisi will officially open the conference. 

BSE CEO, Thapelo Tsheole told journalists yesterday morning that the conference had been able to secure Botswana Insurance Holdings Limited (BIHL) as diamond sponsors as well as Choppies, Rantao Kewagamang Attorneys and Monthe Marumo Attorneys. 

“The idea when we started the conference, was to attract listings to the Exchange and spread the message of listings as far as possible.

“We have reached out a lot in this country and we are seeing progress in terms of companies coming forward to list. There are names we have been working on since 2016 and this year, as well as next year, we are going to see them come forward.

“It takes time to build towards a listing and some of these companies may come after my tenure,” Tsheole said.

year’s conference will include experts on cryptocurrencies and futuristics, both novel areas of possible investor interest for the local market.

Cryptocurrencies are any form of digital currency operating independently of a central bank, such as the now famous Bitcoin.

Futuristics meanwhile, refers to the science of modelling or forecasting the shape of future markets, global events, trends and others for the benefit of forward looking investors.

Representatives of the World Federation of Exchanges will also brief the conference on the issue of listing family owned businesses.

Among the 400 delegates expected at the conference are small, medium, and large enterprises both listed and unlisted, as well as lawyers, brokers, corporate financiers, asset managers and trustees.

The conference avails a platform for listed companies to share lessons on how they created value through listing and how they leveraged on their listing to expand their services and product offerings to markets outside Botswana.
