All the shares you can buy on South Africa’s A2X stock exchange

Santam recently announced that it is the latest company to list on the A2X Markets stock exchange.

The secondary listing on A2X by Santam takes place while the company retains its listing on the JSE and the Namibian Stock Exchange, meaning its issued share capital will not be affected.

Santam CEO Lizé Lambrechts said this secondary listing complemented the insurer’s primary listings on the JSE and Namibian Stock Exchange.

“We are continually looking for new ways to add benefit to our clients and shareholders. We see this additional listing as an opportunity to attract potential new investors.”

A2X CEO Kevin Brady said the exchange looks forward to demonstrating its benefits to Santam shareholders.

The last company to list on A2X was Naspers, which greatly boosted the total market capitalisation of listings available on the exchange.
