Consulting services related to securities trading

In October 2015, Myanmar's first stock market, the Yangon Stock Exchange, was established on the site of the central bank and myawadi bank headquarters. Initially, only Myanmar nationals could trade securities, but on July 12, 2019, the Myanmar Securities and Exchange Commission (SECM) announced that it would allow foreigners to trade on the Yangon Stock Exchange (YSX).

Both residents and non-residents are eligible, and both individuals and corporations can open securities accounts and buy and sell shares.

Currently, the seven companies listed on the Yangon Stock Exchange are as follows:

Company Name Listing date
