As a registered portfolio under the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act of 2002, Satrix 40 adheres to the regulatory framework that ensures transparency, security, and investor protection. The portfolio tracks the performance of the FTSE/JSE Top 40 Index, which represents the largest companies listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in terms of market capitalization.

Investors and market participants can acquire the newly listed Satrix 40 securities through their preferred brokerage platforms or by consulting with their financial advisors.
