General Information

As Jordan’s economic strategy was to restructure the Capital Market and reorganize it, The Securities Law No (23) for the year 1997 was issued where the monitory and legislative role at the capital market were divided and three independent institutions were established according to that law, which are the Securities Depository Center (SDC), The Jordan Securities Commission (JSC) And The Amman Stock Exchange (ASE). Where those three institutions work on developing the capital market in Jordan and protect investors.


The SDC was established on May, 10 1999 as a non-profit public utility entity, and a legal personality with administrative and financial autonomy. The SDC is subject to the JSC’s monitoring and supervision.
