Thomas Murray has added Rwanda to its Securities Market Information (SMI) coverage, bringing the total number of markets to 104. 

Thomas Murray's SMI profiles are structured reports which offer a comprehensive overview of the local securities market, laws and regulations, systems and procedures involved in the life cycle of a securities transaction from trading to clear and settlement, custody and asset servicing arrangements. 

The new Rwanda report feeds from several sources, including a local support bank and the National Bank of Rwana (Central Bank and Central Securities Depository). The report is updated intraday to reflect real-time changes in the market, and clients are immediately notified of updates via email newsflashes. 

Rwanda Market Summary 

The Rwandan capital market has undergone significant change over the past decade following the launch of the National Bank of Rwanda (BNR) Central Securities Depository (CSD) and Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) payment system in 2011. The BNR is the sole CSD in Rwanda, providing settlement, registration and safekeeping services for equities, corporate bonds and government debt securities traded on the Rwanda Stock Exchange (RSE).

Regulatory oversight of the Rwandan capital market is conducted by the Capital Market Authority (CMA), which is a government agency responsible for the supervision of market participants. All securities held within the BNR are in dematerialised form with settlement being conducted via book-entry on a DVP basis.

This is a high-level summary of the market. For the full profile & real-time updates, please subscribe to SMI. The full list of markets covered is available on request.
