How to invest in the JSE
To invest in the JSE, you could either invest in exchange-traded companies or in an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that tracks the performance of a basket of shares, such as the JSE Top 40 index.
The JSE Top 40 index comprises the 43 largest JSE-listed companies by investable market value. The index is weighted towards the media, mining as well as the personal and household goods industrial sectors. Together, these sectors account for 56% of the index’s market capitalization. Please refer to the FTSE Russell factsheet for a comparison of total returns over time, as at May 2017.
Alternatively, you could invest in the shares of JSE-listed companies. These include Naspers Ltd, a multinational internet and media group, mining giants Anglo American PLC and BHP Billiton PLC, as well as financial services firms such as Standard Bank Group and Barclays Africa Group Ltd. Please see our guide to investing in JSE-listed companies for a comprehensive review.
