Security Dealing Activities in South Africa in 2020: Market Implications from COVID-19 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Security Dealing Activities in South Africa in South Africa 2020" report has been added to's offering.

South Africa's security dealing sector is well established and large multinational companies and the large banks are active in the sector. The first months of 2020 were a busy time for stockbroking firms as the JSE's all share index dropped sharply in March in line with a global sell-off of shares in reaction to measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Challenging macro-economic conditions compounded by rising labour and compliance costs continue to have a significant effect on the performance of the security dealing sector. Several multinational stockbrokers closed or downscaled their local trading and equity research businesses in 2018 and 2019.

The profit of South Africa's security dealing firms is under pressure as the weak economy has led to low trading volumes, and fewer mergers and acquisitions and initial public offerings. Many South African investors prefer to invest overseas, which also reduces the demand for the services of local security dealing firms. Profits of stockbroking firms that offer research have also been affected by the cost of complying with the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II and a move away from active to passive investing.
