The activity across some counters was as follows;
The Uganda bourse has outdone Kenya to become the first in the region to roll out an online portal which allows investors to track their portfolio and buy shares during public offerings. The Uganda Securities Exchange (USE) Wednesday launched the e-platform dubbed ‘Easy Portal’ as a strategy to ease access to real time trading information, cutting the journey to a stockbroker.
Other bourses in East Africa including the Nairobi Securities Exchange are also racing to launch similar portals to allow investors follow price changes, portfolio size, and statements in real time.
