> The Stock Exchange of Mauritius (SEM) launches the SEM Bond Index (SEM-BI) on 14 November 2017



Following substantive reforms brought to the SEM’s operational framework since 2009 in the context of its transformational move towards a multi-asset class international Exchange, the SEM has successfully attracted the listing of a growing number of debt instruments on its Debt Board. The total market capitalization of all debt instruments listed and traded on the SEM currently stands at Rs 21.5 billion and this capitalization level is expected to increase in the coming months as more listed issuers resort to debt funding.

 

The timing is, therefore, opportune to create a Bond index which will provide bond investors with a dynamic and measurable tool of the time-series performance of the bond index constituents.  The launching of SEM-BI confirms the attractiveness of the SEM as a compelling capital-raising and listing platform for debt instruments.  It is also expected to enhance the visibility of the debt market in Mauritius.
