Greetings to all who visit the Mongolian Stock Exchange website dedicated to fostering an “Inclusive Capital Market” in Mongolia.
The Mongolian Stock Exchange has been progressively expanding its business operation for more than 30 years since the formation of the Mongolian Capital Market in 1991, proactively adapting to the evolving landscape of capital market law and the legal environment while simultaneously introducing internationally accepted market infrastructure, all in pursuit of its ongoing development.
Between 2021 and 2023, the Mongolian Stock Exchange has made significant strides amid a heightened focus on post-pandemic business and economic recovery. As of the third quarter of 2023, the market capitalization of the Mongolian Stock Exchange has surged to an impressive 10.6 trillion MNT, with 185 joint-stock companies listed across the three classifications. A total of 51 member securities companies actively operate on the Mongolian capital market to provide securities services to fulfill approximately 2 million shareholders' and investors’ needs.
The years 2022 and 2023 marked a remarkable period of turnover, with the Mongolian Stock Exchange market capitalization increasing threefold. Furthermore, in September 2022, FTSE Russell Group, a prominent global provider of benchmarking, analytics, and data solutions, approved to include the Mongolian capital market in “Frontier market status”, effective September 2023.

Accordingly, on December 23, 2022, "The Mongolian Stock Exchange" became a joint-stock company by offering its additional shares to the public.
As part of the amendments made to the Banking Law, the 5 systemically important banks of Mongolia, namely Khan Bank, Trade Development Bank, Xac Bank, Golomt Bank, and State Bank, fulfilled their obligations to become public companies before June 30, 2023, and successfully raised 302.5 billion MNT by offering their shares to the public. In addition, products such as domestic companies’ shares, asset-backed securities, and debt instruments were listed on the Mongolian Stock Exchange, and securities worth more than 60 billion MNT were successfully traded on the primary market.
Presently, the "Mongolian Stock Exchange" has expanded into a commodities market to grow its business operations. Moreover, we are working towards upgrading the trading system, increasing opportunities for foreign investors to actively participate in the Mongolian capital market, strengthening capital market regulation, improving market participants’ operational coordination, and improving the legal environment.
Throughout this journey, the Mongolian Stock Exchange welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with professional organizations in the capital market, issuers, as well as all of the people who are visiting this website.
I am confident to say that through our collaboration, we can significantly expand our market and achieve positive outcomes in Mongolia's capital market, contributing to its overall economic growth.
May the development and inclusivity of the capital market be progressive and a gateway to development expansion!
