JSE regulatory services

Our JSE-approved sponsor executives have extensive experience on the application of all relevant regulatory frameworks.

PwC’s transaction sponsor team offers sponsor services to Main Board equity issuers on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

We remain independent from trading, equity analysts, lending and private equity activities to give truly independent advice.

Our support and solutions help JSE equity issuers navigate the complex regulatory environment. We give corporate finance and regulatory advice to companies that are listed or contemplating a listing, on the application and interpretation of the JSE Listing Requirements, including the drafting of appropriate documentation, disclosures and the management of transaction-related projects. We are a trusted communication channel between our clients and the JSE.
