About Proshare

Proshare’s remit is simple: to serve as a critical bridge between investors and markets.

We are organised as a professional practice to provide accountability in our role of opening up the market place by complementing regulators and SRO’s to shape conversations, advocate on key change imperatives, hold the system accountable in a collaborative manner and raise the bar through the way we conduct our engagements. Our goal is to facilitate the information needs of a vibrant, productive and growing African economy.
