Mauritius to introduce futures trading
A giant leap for a frontier market. The Stock Exchange of Mauritius will soon start trading in futures. The first futures contracts will be on the SEM-7 index and on some of the most liquid stocks traded on the official market. The SEM-7 is made up of the largest companies by market capitalization, including Mauritius Commercial Bank, Naiade Resorts, New Mauritius Hotels, and State Bank of Mauritius.
