The Cambodia Securities Exchange (CSX) (Khmer: ក្រុមហ៊ុន ផ្សារមូលបត្រកម្ពុជា; abbreviation: ផមក) is the national stock exchange of Cambodia. The exchange's purpose is to achieve high economic growth by facilitating flows of capital, investment, and reallocation of capital based on capital market mechanisms. The exchange is headquartered in the Canadia Tower, in Cambodia's capital city, Phnom Penh.

As of 2016, CSX was reported to have the smallest total market capitalization for its listed companies of any stock exchange in the world, with a total capitalization of $103.1 million.[1]


In November 2006, the Cambodian Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) and Korea Exchange (KRX) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop the securities market in Cambodia. The following November, Cambodian Prime Minister, Samdech Hun Sen hosted an international conference promoting the launch of the Cambodia Securities Market project.

In March 2009, the Royal Government of Cambodia and Korea Exchange signed a "Joint-Venture Agreement" to establish a stock market ("The Cambodia Securities Exchange Co., Ltd"). The Cambodia Securities Exchange was then incorporated on 23 February 2010. The MEF owns 55% of the registered capital and KRX the remaining 45%.


On 18 April 2012, Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority became the first domestically listed company on the Cambodian Securities Exchange.[2] Its shares went up 48 percent on the first day of trading after investors sought more than 10 times the available stock.[2][3] The second stock listed currently (February 2015) is Grand Twins International, a Taiwanese garment maker, which first trading day was on 16 June 2014.
