The Uganda Securities Exchange has rolled out an online trading window — Easy Portal — that offers investors opportunities for faster transactions at no fee to spur trading activity.

But a scarcity of equity listings and limited investor participation could work against the initiative.

Easy Portal directly helps investors to trade shares without hiring stockbrokers.

Stocks traded on the USE are charged a commission of 2.1 per cent that is shared between the stockbrokers, the bourse, the Capital Markets Authority and the Investor Compensation Fund, among other agencies.

To trade, investors will log in their Central Depository System account numbers, their national identification card numbers and view the prevailing stock prices before choosing trading options.

The trading window also contains an initial public offering (IPO) application, a critical aid for handling investor documents usually submitted during public equity offerings.Investor statements issued by this facility will be saved for a maximum of six years, the bourse said. However, investment costs tied to this trading portal could not be confirmed by press time.

Low IPO growth

IPO growth usually attracts more investors to stockmarkets and in turn, boosts trading activity as new investors seek to exploit fresh opportunities available at the bourse.

The low IPO growth at the USE can be traced back to 2012. While DFCU Ltd and New Vision Ltd were listed in and also recorded oversubscription of about 50 per cent, Stanbic Bank Uganda was listed in 2007 following a successful IPO that was oversubscribed three times, according to industry data.

Nevertheless, the bourse is exploring IPO opportunities among some government-owned financial institutions that possess reasonable growth forecasts.

However, sluggish growth evidenced in IPO subscriptions in recent times could impact investor uptake on the Easy Portal window, observers say.

 

Chedid Capital, a Dubai-based insurance and reinsurance broker, has entered into a strategic partnership with Mauritius conglomerate GML to provide operational management of brokers in Uganda, Kenya and eight other African countries.

The 50-50 joint venture — GML-Chedid and Associates East Africa Ltd with estimated combined 2013 revenues of US$1.2 billion — will initially be based in Nairobi, Kenya before moving inward to Kampala.

The new firm will enter into strategic partnerships to oversee, design and control processes of selected licensed insurance and reinsurance brokers to make them more efficient as oil and gas revenues start to flow in the East African reion.

GML head Arnaud Lagesse said: “This new venture will allow us to tap into the lucrative markets in East Africa while relying on Chedid’s expertise and GML’s proximity and knowledge of the earmarked regions.”

Uganda has 26 licensed insurance brokers with some being focus of the partnership.

Ugandan insurance brokers are now required to have a minimum paid-up capital of 75 million shillings (about US$28,000), up from 50 million shillings under recent 2014 industry requirements.The partnership will take on insurance brokers in Tanzania, Rwanda, Botswana, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe.– BERNAMA-NNN-NEW VISION
