The Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE) is a stock exchange located on Ohio Street, west of Kivukoni, south east of Dar es Salaam, the commercial capital and largest city in Tanzania. It was incorporated in September 1996 and trading started in April 1998. It is a member of the African Stock Exchanges Association. The exchange is open five days a week, from Monday through Friday. The trading days are weekly from Monday to Friday, starting from 10.00 am to 14.00 pm.

The activities of the exchange are monitored and supervised by the Capital Markets and Securities Authority (CMSA).[2] The DSE operates in close association with the Nairobi Securities Exchange in Kenya and the Uganda Securities Exchange in Uganda. Plans are underway to integrate the three to form a single East African bourse.[3]



The Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange was established by the capital markets and security authority under the Capital Markets and Securities (CMS) Act of 1994 in Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania. The stock exchange was incorporated on 19 September 1996.[4][5] The company was incorporated as a private company limited by guarantee and not having a share capital under the Companies Ordinate, therefore the DSE is a non-profit making body.[6]

The exchange became operational on 15 April 1998 with TOL Gas Limited listing as the first company followed by the Tanzania Breweries Limited (TBL) during the same year. The delay was due to the necessary background operational preparations that were inevitable such as training of brokers and formulation of issuance and trading rules.[4]


On 29 June 2015 the Dar-es-Salaam Stock exchange re-registered to become a public limited company. The company changed its name from the Dar Es Salaam Stock Exchange Limited to Dar Es Salaam Stock Exchange Public Limited Company.[7] The company began selling shares on 16 May 2016 and is the third exchange in Africa after Johannesburg Stock Exchange (2006) and Nairobi Securities Exchange (2014) to self list.[8][9] The company offered 30% of the company's stock on the stock exchange represented by 15,000,000 ordinary shares.[10]
