ABSTRACT
The article provides information about the history of the insignificant Cape Town Stock Exchange in South Africa, which was established by African brokers on May 3, 1901. It was formed in response to the disruption caused by the South African War in 1899 to 1902. Dealings at the exchange have never been significant, because of the slow growth of its members. Its first set of board of directors were Jansen, Bolus, Simkins, Langton, Elias Harris, and O'Flaherty. One of its roles include regulating and controlling business enterprises engaged in shares, lands, and other movable and immovable properties dealings.
