Webinar Recording: Trade South Africa – Considerations for Connecting to and Trading the Johannesburg Markets

Interest among the international institutional community in trading South African markets is on the rise. With connectivity, data and analytics options for trading on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange growing more sophisticated, and the emergence of A2X as a credible alternative equity market, South Africa is shaping up as a financial centre that can offer a broad array of opportunities: market fragmentation, high-frequency trading, the presence of international, domestic and government funds, and a large retail business.

In turn, the technology requirements for realising these emerging opportunities are becoming more complex, with a growing need for high-performance and secure connectivity, smart order routing, links to the major prime brokerages and order routing networks, and state-of-the-art pre-trade risk systems.

This webinar examines the opportunities for those firms looking to participate in South Africa’s increasingly sophisticated markets and discusses the data and technology capabilities required to succeed in this maturing financial centre.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

• The current trading landscape in South Africa, including key exchanges, brokers, funds and data and technology providers

• The data, analytics and connectivity challenges facing firms seeking to participate in South Africa’s growing and diverse markets

• Best practice approaches to meeting the demands of South Africa’s increasingly fragmented marketplace.


• Kevin Brady, CEO at A2X
• Valdene Reddy, Director of Capital Markets at Johannesburg Stock Exchange
• Merlin Rajah, Head of Equities Electronic Product at Absa
• Mike Powell, CEO at Rapid Addition
