The Dutch Caribbean Securities Exchange (DCSX) is a self-regulatory international Exchange for the listing and trading in domestic- and international securities [1]; simply put, it is a platform where companies can register to get funds, for instance for expansion, and investors can invest in these registered companies. The DCSX realizes that for the international business community to prosper, startups as well as small and medium-sized enterprises must be in the position to attract capital on a regulated and practically oriented exchange and to do so at fair costs. It is this startup and SME community that the DCSX is focused on servicing.[2]

In order to get your company registered, or listed, at the DCSX, you first need a Listing Adivsor of the DCSX. The Listing Advisor will guide you before, during and after the listing process, the process of your company's registration. [3]



The DCSX Foundation functions as the self-regulatory direct supervisory body that assures that Management of the DCSX adheres to the processes as laid down in the Rules and Regulations. It is also the DSCX Foundation that needs to approve new members to the DCSX. The Board of the DCSX Foundation is composed of representatives of financial institutions and or other organizations whose interest it is that Curaçao has a well-functioning securities exchange.[4]


The Board of Directors of the Exchange consists of the CEO, the President of the Board, the Treasurer of the Board and a few Board Members.[5] A Listing Committee is responsible for approving new listings on the Exchange. Arbitration is managed by an Appeals Committee.

Rules and regulations[edit]

The DCSX has a set of well-defined rules to regulate and supervise the market and its participants. The rules provide smaller companies with flexibility and easier access to an equity market while providing transparency and strong governance. The DCSX is a regulated membership organization, licensed by the Minister of Finance and supervised by the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten. The DCSX follows Curaçao law, which is in concordance with Dutch Law. Final appeals of dispute are heard and decided at the Supreme Court of the Netherlands.


The DCSX operates under full license of the Minister of Finance of the Curacao Government and is supervised by the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten.[6] The supervision of the Central Bank comprises, among other things, ensuring transparency and business integrity, the proper administrative organization and internal control environment, and the adequate functioning of the securities market and exchange.[7]
