Canadian Securities Exchange Reports Record Performance Figures in the First Half of 2021






The Canadian Securities Exchange announced its market statistics for the month of June 2021, and for the first six months of 2021. The first half of the year represented the strongest six-month period in the CSE’s history.


Operating Statistics

  • Trading volume of CSE-listed securities totaled 2.9 billion shares in June, and 30.6 billion in H1 2021);
  • Trading value of CSE-listed securities was $2.1 billion in June, and $24.4 billion in H1 2021;
  • CSE issuers completed 72 financings that raised $258 million in June, and 642 financings that raised $4.8 billion in H1 2021. On a trailing 12-month basis, total capital raised exceeded $6.7 billion;
  • There were 16 new listings in June and 99 new listings in H1 2021, bringing total CSE listings to 684; and
  • As a result of the growth in listings, and widespread appreciation in valuations, the aggregate market value of CSE issuers was $63.2 billion as at June 30, 2021, compared to $42.1 billion at year-end 2020.


“The first half of 2021 was a record-breaking period for the CSE. We witnessed unprecedented levels of trading and financing activity among our issuers, and our highest-ever growth in new listings,” said Richard Carleton, CSE Chief Executive Officer. “We are delighted to see such strong investor demand for emerging companies. This promotes strong entrepreneurial activity, which is highly positive for the CSE and for the Canadian economy as a whole.”


“In addition, we are very excited by the announcement last week that Tetra Trust Company has received regulatory approval to be the first Canadian custodian of digital assets. This is an important step in our plan to enable the listing of tokenized securities on the CSE, backed by a clearing and settlement platform that is currently in development. We have an investment in Tetra Trust and look forward to providing our issuers and investors with new opportunities in the digital asset universe.”
