The Barbados Stock Exchange operates a secondary market for the trading of shares. This means that companies do not sell their shares directly to the public via the exchange. Instead, after companies have gone public and taken the decision to list; we provide a mechanism for any investor to purchase shares in the company from shareholders who are desirous of divesting their holdings.

The process of trading shares in listed companies is open to anyone over the age of 18 and is facilitated through any one of our Registered Brokers.

The Barbados Stock Exchange is designated as a Recognized Stock Exchange by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in the United Kingdom.
