The JSE has been taken to task regarding questionable listings and its responsibility to protect retail investors.

This following the listings of Gupta-linked Oakbay and Iqbal Surve’s proposed listing of Sagarmatha as well as the collapse of Steinhoff, all of which have called into question whether the JSE has a bigger role to play when considering listings and protecting investors.

JSE CEO Nicky Newton-King discussed these issues with Business Day TV.
