Since its inception in 1996, there is a lack of literature that shows success of DSE in
its operations. This study therefore, was put in place in order to examine the success
and challenges of stock market in Tanzania. The central issues of concern were to
determine the perceptions of stakeholders, towards stock market operations
activities, to understand the opportunities resulting from operations of stock market
and to investigate on the success and challenges facing stock market in Tanzania.
The study was conducted in Dar Es Salaam City using a descriptive survey research
design. A total number of 40 respondents constituted the study sample, which
included listed companies, stock market participants and DSE staff. Data were
gathered using questionnaire and interviews. Interviews were administered to
executives of the listed companies and DSE staff, while questionnaires were
administered to individual respondents. Data were then analyzed using frequencies,
Tables, percentages, and strong explanation building. The study has found out that,
majority of stakeholders admitted that, stock market had the positive impact towards
the key issues to companies. Also, the study identified various opportunities
available from the stock market operations. Furthermore, it uncovered various
successes by which DSE had achieved so far. Some of the key successes observed
include; raising capital for businesses, mobilizing savings for investments and
facilitation of privatization. However, it was also found out there were host of
challenges which faced the stock market in Tanzania. The most notable challenges
were; lack of desirable characteristics of stock exchange market, lack of public
awareness, few market participants as well as lack of competent experts in financial
markets. Finally, the study recommended various strategies that could be employed
to address the above challenges.
