Bird's eye view of the JSE's recent proposals to reform its listings framework

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In a consultation paper (Consultation Paper) published in May 2022, the JSE Limited (JSE) asked for public comment on a number of works-in-progress and proposals to reform its listings framework, in light of international developments and recent JSE initiatives. In August 2022, the JSE published a response paper to the Consultation Paper (Response Paper), setting out (i) market appetite to proceed with the identified works-in-progress and proposals and (ii) a roadmap of the reforms that will be prioritised by the JSE, including broad scope timelines.

The Response Paper indicated positive responses from the market on the proposed reforms, which the JSE will progress with the exception of the proposal to introduce a Technology Board (which it will revisit at a later stage).

We provide a "bird's eye view" of the identified works-in-progress and proposals in the Consultation Paper and the outcomes of the Response Paper, including the JSE's broad scope timelines.
