The Bermuda Stock Exchange (BSX) is a for-profit fully electronic securities market regulated by the Bermuda Monetary Authority, offering listing and trading for international and domestic companies. It also trades debt, depository receipts, insurance-linked securities and derivative warrants.

The BSX is a member exchange of the World Federation of Exchanges[1][2] and an affiliate member of the International Organisation of Securities Commissions.

It is recognized as a Designated Offshore Securities Market by the US Securities and Exchange Commission and as a Recognised Stock Exchange by UK HM Revenue and Customs.

History

The exchange was established in 1971, primarily as a domestic equities market, and in 1992 the company was restructured into a demutualised, for-profit entity.[3]

In late 2019 Miami International Holdings acquired a controlling interest in the Bermuda Stock Exchange.[4]

MIH cited Bermuda’s recently passed Digital Asset Business Act, 2018 (“DABA”), along with the Bermuda Government’s commitment to fintech regulation and its established re/insurance market, as making Bermuda attractive to them as an investment.
