Momentum Metropolitan has recently been approved for a secondary listing on A2X Markets and will list on 5 August 2020.
The company will retain its listings on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and the Namibian Stock Exchange.
Momentum Metropolitan Group Finance Director Risto Ketola said they are committed to supporting initiatives that drive down the frictional costs in financial market transactions.
“We believe that the listing on A2X is part of that commitment,” Ketola said.
Ketola added that healthy competition is to everyone’s benefit and supporting multiple local exchanges helps to increase competitiveness in this space.
A2X CEO Kevin Brady said their experience has shown that by reducing friction costs in the form of lower exchange fees, the quality of the market improves.
