JSE Sponsor

As an approved Sponsor registered with the JSE Securities Exchange South Africa (JSE), Bridge Capital assists both listed companies and companies seeking to list on the main board of the JSE. The appointment of a permanent Sponsor is a requirement of the JSE Listings Requirements. We see this as the start of a relationship that will result in our clients reaping the maximum benefits from their listing.

It is this philosophy which led to our being ranked among the top ten sponsors in South Africa in 2004.

We work hand-in-hand with our clients in order to provide you with a tailor-made offering, catering to your unique requirements within the areas of:
  • Corporate activity
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Investor relations
  • Market intelligence
