GETTING STARTED

To start trading in Colombo Stock Exchange, you need to open a CDS account with us. Once you have setup your account, you can then place share trades with your investment advisor who will execute it on your behalf or you can directly place orders thorough our online trading platforms.

INVESTOR PROTECTION

Colombo has a fair reputation internationally as a well-regulated market. Investor protection operates on two tiers. Investors can lodge a complaint if they believe that they have been unfairly treated. The complaint should in the first instance be made to the Compliance Officer of the Member Firm. If the investor is dissatisfied with the decision of the member firm, the investor can refer the complaint to the Exchange and as a third recourse, he/she can refer the complaint to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The CSE and the Securities and Exchange Commission both have surveillance divisions that track market movement to identify evidence of insider trading, front running, churning, etc. Inquiries are conducted and, if necessary, the offenders can be charged under the Securities and Exchange Commission Act. The market surveillance system with a database of trading records maintains details of transactions and enables investigations into market manipulations.

A settlement guarantee fund and a compensation fund are in place. Additionally stockbrokers also provide a cash deposit and a bank guarantee to the CSE to be used in the event of a settlement failure. In addition to this the brokers are also required to be sufficiently liquid and to maintain minimum levels of net capital to minimize settlement failure.



Remember, Investment means that your capital is at risk and the value of investments can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you initially invested. Past performance is no guide to future performance.
