Bourse Africa, a commodity spot and derivatives exchange, is a multi-asset class pan-African exchange.

The exchange, which was set to open as of March 2, 2010,[1] is 60-percent owned by Financial Technologies, which purchased the stake in December 2008.[2] The remaining ownership stake is held by African financial institutions, banks and strategic investors.[3] [4]

The exchange will offer contracts on commodities, currencies, bonds and diamonds and is aimed at being a pan-African market through a hub-and-spoke approach throughout Africa.[5]

The exchange expects to partner with local institutions to offer local university graduates training in trading spot and derivatives markets.


Products and Services[edit]

The exchange expects to launch contracts on precious and base metals, energy products, agricultural commodities and minerals.
