History

As a result of demutualization of stock exchanges, the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) was structured as a public company limited by shares under the name of Karachi Stock Exchange Limited, as of Aug. 27, 2012 after issuance of the certificate of re-registration by the Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan.

In August of 2012, it became known that the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) and Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) were in advanced stages of discussion regarding cross listing of indices on futures contracts. The KSE was also in discussion with the New York Stock Exchange regarding possibilities of trading of KSE-30 and KMI-30 indices at NYSE.[2]
