The Uganda CMA approves the offers of all securities to the public, licenses market professionals like broker-dealers, investment advisers and fund managers. It licenses stock exchanges and has so far issued a licence to one stock exchange; the Uganda Securities Exchange. Its overall objectives are market regulation and investor protection.[2]

  • The creation, maintenance and regulation, through implementation of a system in which the markets participants are self-regulatory to the maximum practicable extent, and of a market in which securities can be issued and traded in an orderly, fair and efficient manner.
  • The protection of investor interests.
  • The operation of an Investor Compensation Fund.
  • The licensing of brokers and other financial industry professionals.


Grace Kavuma is the Chairman of the Board of Directors and Keith Kalyegira serves as the Chief Executive Officer.[3][4]
