The Stock Exchange of Mauritius (SEM) introduced the Central Depository and Settlement System (CDS) in 1997, to provide a centralised depository, clearing and settlement service for the SEM equity and debt markets. The CDS has eliminated certificates, which leads to a more efficient and faster share trading system. The CDS also provides pledge and share release services, as well as securities lending.
Investors wanting to trade on the SEM must have a CDS Securities account with an investment dealer or custodian participant. We guide you through the process and help you to set up your trading account. Our research and portfolio advisory team can also provide you with the information you need to buy or sell shares on the stock market. Our trading team acts on your instructions with professionalism, timeliness and accuracy, while our back office team ensures smooth completion of the settlement cycle.
