About the stock exchange
Location: Santiago, Chile

  • The first attempts to establish a stock exchange in Chile were made in 1840 with little success. In 1884, there were already 160 corporations and this forced the creation of a specialized stock market where to direct all transactions with securities. The Santiago Stock Exchange was founded on November 27th, 1893, as a major step to infuse energy and vitality into the national economy.
  • ​Santiago Exchange has several markets, which currently trade over USD 2 billion a day in equities, fixed income securities, money market instruments, investment fund shares and foreign securities. During the last decade, the exchange has expanded and evolved into a global point of interest for investors and a strategic partner for regional stock markets.

Stock Exchange Database Criteria

The SSE maintains a database of sustainability activities for all stock exchanges that are either members of the SSE initiative and/or members of the World Federation of Exchanges. This database is the most comprehensive database of stock exchanges worldwide and contains data on all main stock exchanges. The information in this database is intended to inform investors and other stakeholders on the work stock exchanges are undertaking to advance sustainability in their respective markets.

The information provided in this database is based on publicly available information prepared by the SSE Secretariat with input from stock exchanges in most instances. Sources and explanatory notes on sustainability information have been included in individual Stock Exchange Fact Sheets. The criteria for each category can be found below.

While every effort is made to keep the information in this database up to date, please be aware that certain factors change frequently and therefore may not be exact, such as the number of listed companies or market cap.
