Pakistan Stock Exchange

Pakistan Stock Exchange was established on September 18, 1947 and was formally incorporated on March 10, 1949 under the name of ‘Karachi Stock Exchange’, as a Company limited by Guarantee. In October 1970, a second stock exchange was established in Lahore to meet the stock trading needs of the provincial metropolis. In October 1989, Islamabad Stock Exchange was established to cater to the investors of the northern parts of the country. Because the three exchanges had separate management, trading interfaces, indices, and had no mutualized structure, therefore the Stock Exchanges (Corporatization, Demutualization, and Integration) Act, 2012 was promulgated by the Government of Pakistan which ultimately resulted in the three exchanges integrating their operations effective January 11, 2016 under the new name ‘Pakistan Stock Exchange Limited’ (PSX).
