South Africa to get second stock exchange: ZAR X

first_imgSouth Africa is to get its second stock exchange, after the Johannesburg Stock Exchange has dominated trading in the country for more than a century. ZAR X has been given a licence to operate, and it plans to be up and running in September.ZAR X investors will be able to monitor the performances of their shares on the company’s website (Image: Pixabay, CC0 Public Domain)Priya PitamberSouth Africa is to get its first new stock exchange in more than a century. ZAR X Stock Exchange announced yesterday that the Financial Services Board (FSB) had granted it conditional approval for a stock exchange licence.The licence had been granted under the Financial Markets Act and the conditional approval was granted subject to certain suspensive conditions being met to the satisfaction of the Registrar of Securities Services, said ZAR X.The Johannesburg Stock Exchange has been South Africa’s only bourse. It was founded in Johannesburg in 1887, during the Witwatersrand gold rush. It is Africa’s biggest and most liquid stock market.ZAR X intends to start operating in September, and aims to enable more lower- income investors to trade shares. According to the company, ZAR X will help “you to grow your financial potential through investment and saving”.ZAR X, the company explains, is a platform that will let “everyday South Africans transact shares quickly, cheaply and conveniently, even if they have never formally invested money or opened a bank account before. The platform is designed to empower those who don’t have skills or experience in investing, to easily and safely build a brighter financial future for themselves and their families.”It will also give business enterprises a flexible, transparent and affordable way to list their restricted or limited share offerings, so that ordinary South Africans can take advantage of them. The idea will be to give South Africans access to restricted share listings, to help them secure investment opportunities in order to build financial security.Bloomberg news agency reports that ZAR X plans to run three sections: a main board for company listings, an over-the-counter stock-trading business, and an investment products market.“A more flexible and practical listings process will ensure greater simplicity and less complexity for companies making use of the ZAR X Stock Exchange,” chief executive officer Etienne Nel said in a company statement. “We also make investing simpler and affordable for the public, especially the lower income groups.”In a Moneyweb report, Nel said a big cost advantage for investors was that there would be no custody fees. These are fees paid by investors towards brokers who execute trades on their behalf. Although there will be brokers on the ZAR X, investors will not have to execute trades directly through them. Instead they will be able to log their trades via a call-centre, online, or through a mobile app, the online financial news portal reports.ZAR X will be based in Bryanston, Johannesburg, although there will not be a central market itself. Investors will be able to monitor the performances of their shares on the company’s website.It will be in good company. The JSE rates among the top 20 exchanges in the world by market capitalisation.The JSE is regarded as a mature, efficient, secure market with world-class regulation, trading, clearing, settlement assurance and risk management. It has harmonised its listing requirements, disclosure and continuing obligations with those of the London Stock Exchange and offers superb investor protection.The World Economic Forum’s 2015-16 Global Competitiveness Index rates South Africa first in the world – out of 140 countries – for financing through the local equity market, and second for the regulation of securities exchanges.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

I like to use them to section my hair when straightening (although that is some thing i not often do now) i have had no trouble with them and would endorse them, although for standard use (just clipping your hair up) they are not wide adequate for my thick curly hair. But they meet the function for what i purchased them for.I genuinely like the grip on these clips but the only actuality. I truly like the grip on these clips but the only simple fact i gave it 3 stars is because they are deadly the pointy detail on the clip where by you maintain it from is sharper than a knife i have had a lot of scratches in the earlier so i stopped working with them.They are a good excellent and have a sturdy clip.

Well happy with them, they will last me for ages .The clips have been excellent worth but postage charges not. The clips are great but would be reluctant to get a little something so low-cost following time as the postage costs cancelled out the superior benefit. I need to have ordered other goods to make it much better benefit.I bought these to aid my daughter when she is dying her hair. She does it herself and i know these clips make her daily life much easier.These clips are good and a discount price. I initially acquired them to clip my thick hair when hair drying but am also now employing them as an every day clip as they are so fantastic.Loved them they do preserve you hair in put there truly powerful as i have been disapointed with the ones i obtain in the outlets if i realized they where by this potent i would of bought additional.Acquired these for a mate to use on my hair as she is a hair dresser and did my perm as a favour at house so i experienced to provide the ‘kit’ as she typically works in a salon and only has minimal tools at household. She said they had been high-quality and i glimpse excellent so guess we had been the two happy.last_img read more

Steve Jobs was Steve Jobs. You can read the books, you can find lessons to take away from what Jobs did at Apple, but you can’t be Steve Jobs. Nor would he want you to be. You never read a story that suggested that Jobs wanted to be Thomas Edison. His success came from being Steve Jobs.You are not Richard Branson. We already have a Richard Branson. There are some lessons you can learn from Branson, but his form of irreverence and resistance to what are considered normal business practices is Branson’s thing. He isn’t who he is because he wants you to be another version of Branson. You’ve never read a story that Branson wanted to be Rockefeller. Branson is successful because he is being Branson.You are not the next Zuckerberg, the next Gates, the next Buffet, the next Musk, or the next Rockefeller. These people aren’t trying to be someone else. All of them were and are originals. That is what makes them special.There are lessons you can learn from reading about other people who have succeeded in entrepreneurial endeavors. There are principles that you can observe, and some that you can actually practice.But you can’t be the next anyone. Your circumstances are different. Your business is different. The people you work with are different. Your opportunities are different, and so are your challenges. You have different strengths, and you have different weaknesses.

10 months agoFree & nasty: Why Pepe the old ‘basket’ this Man Utd needs

first_imgTagsTransfersOpinionAbout the authorChris BeattieShare the loveHave your say Free & nasty: Why Pepe the old ‘basket’ this Man Utd needsby Chris Beattie10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCOMMENT: They’ve already had the conversation. Jose Mourinho and Jorge Mendes. The Manchester United manager will have been all across it – and well before yesterday’s announcement…’So, do you want him? He fancies it…,’ the pitch from Mourinho’s agent will have been made. Short. To the point. Just as he offered Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao to the then Chelsea manager some four years ago. That is, before delivering them to Ed Woodward, United’s vice-chairman exec. Mendes will have given Mourinho first refusal on his latest client to become available. A player to parachute into the shambles that is United’s back four this season. A player who has gone to war for Mourinho. Who has spilled blood for the manager. Both his and the opposition’s. One who revels in being a right old basket. The sort of basket this United locker room has sorely missed. Ryan Giggs, the Wales coach, said as much yesterday. Picking over the wreckage of what was left at Anfield, Giggs took aim at Romelu Lukaku – though with a twist. As bad as the Belgian was, argued United’s famous No11, the lack of confrontation inside the locker room was doing him no favours.”I look at Lukaku and his touch was bad,” stated Giggs, “but also I don’t see any other player having a go at him, saying: ‘Listen we need you to hold it up.’ “What that does is, Lukaku might have a go back and you get fired up.”It’s like when you get tackled or fouled, you get fired up. You don’t see that in that Manchester United team. “We’re playing in a different era to when I used to play when you had a lot more leaders and characters but if your team-mate isn’t performing, you tell them. You must do.” Step forward Pepe. The three time Champions League winner. Of Real Madrid fame. Now wrapping up his stay with Besiktas. In a day or so he’ll be a free agent. A leader. A winner. A personality to organise those around him. To demand they follow the manager’s instructions. And one who won’t flinch if a rollicking is needed for a young teammate – even if that young teammate boasts a World Cup winner’s medal.We know Mourinho has been seeking such a player. Those Andreas Granqvist stories weren’t plucked from thin air. United had a presence at Helsingborgs games this season. The veteran centre-half – at 33 – was a consideration for Mourinho. Granqvist knew it. The HIF board knew it. Like Pepe, the Swede’s experience and organising know-how was what had attracted the United manager. Though this is one we can’t confirm, it’s perhaps no coincidence that Granqvist – after some excitement last month – announced over the weekend he was “99.9 per cent sure” an Old Trafford move was now off. Maybe, just maybe, the word had reached Granqvist’s reps that another veteran was now Mourinho’s focus.After Liverpool. After the confusion. The chaos. Mourinho needs something different. Something to stop the monotonous lurching. From crisis to inevitable crisis. He needs a circuit breaker. And Pepe can be just that.The 35 year-old isn’t leaving Besiktas because of form. Nor any type of personality clash. With the Black Eagles struggling to pay the bills, the Portuguese has agreed to terminate his contract. The defender made an on pitch farewell yesterday for Besiktas’ draw with Trabzonspor. This just days after he left thousands in an envelope for club staff to share as a personal Christmas bonus.So now he is free – and been offered to Mourinho. Someone to help bring on Diogo Dalot. To guide and develop the raw talent of Eric Bailly. The potential of Victor Lindelof. And one to demand better from those around him. The leader on the pitch. The personality inside the dressing room. The one Mourinho has lacked since Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s departure a year ago.That call from Mendes last week could be just the Lifebuoy Mourinho has been desperately seeking all season. last_img read more
