Capital Markets

Tunisia Capital Markets

Tunisia’s stock market has seen steady growth in capitalisation in recent years, and while the number of initial public offerings (IPOs) was limited in 2016, the exchange registered a positive performance over the year due to strong results in the industrial, consumer goods and financial sectors. The near-term outlook appears equally encouraging, with several IPOs in the pipeline. The bourse is looking to accelerate that momentum by bringing in new products and calling for supportive measures from the government to further raise its level of development. The extent of economic growth, successful efforts to attract increased financing and investment, and whether or not the government goes ahead with previously suggested listings of major state-owned firms will strongly influence market performance and development going forward.
