Malawi Stock Exchange welcomes new entrant

The Malawi Stock Exchange (MSE) on Monday registered a new entrant following the listing of Mauritius registered FMB Capital Holdings (FMBCH).

The development has brought the number of listed companies on the local bourse to 14.

Over the past couple of weeks, FMB shareholders were invited to swap their shares in the bank in exchange with shares in the Mauritius-based holding company.

FMBCH Chairman, Hitesh Anadkat, said Mauritius provides a better platform to raise capital than Malawi.

New product to aid financial inclusion

local IT firm, Angle Dimension, has developed new software to provide Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions to microfinance institutions.

The software will ease financial transactions and enable people in rural areas to access financial services.

About 66 percent of the population in Malawi is still unbanked.

Angle Dimension Chief Technology Officer, Henry Sauzande, said Aspect Financials 360 offers a suite of functionalities that are affordable and applicable to the whole microfinance industry.

No end to blackouts

Power outages are expected to worsen following a reduction in generation capacity by 19.3 percent, according to the Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (Escom).

Escom has said as at the beginning of September, the country was only able to generate three quarters of its full installed capacity.

This means Malawians are only able to access 295 megawatts of electricity against the total installed capacity of 361 megawatts.

The drop is mainly attributed to continued fall of water levels in Lake Malawi.
