Launched in 2010, The Dutch Caribbean Securities Exchange (DCSX) is an international exchange based on the island of Curaçao for the listing and trading of domestic and international securities.
Curaçao’s long-standing reputation as a Caribbean financial center, and its strong links to the Netherlands, mean that the DCSX is a recognized securities exchange in a reputable jurisdiction.
The DCSX has become very popular in recent years a strong alternative to other regional exchanges, particularly for DCSX-listed entities that own a qualifying number of shares in a Dutch entity. These entities benefit from a bilateral tax treaty between Curaçao and the Netherlands, which means that no taxes are levied on the dividends that they pay out to investors. Interestingly, DCSX listings have attracted the attention of many Chinese SMEs. Not only does the DCSX allow them to get exposure abroad, it also enables them to obtain a higher market value and to gain the attention of a wide pool of private equity and venture capital investors.
Entities are able to list bonds, equities and funds on the DCSX. These can be issued by either a public offering or a private placement. Each has a different set of rules and regulations that issuers must comply with, in which the rules of private placement are less stringent than that of a public offering.
If you want your company to be listed on the DCSX you are required to have an authorized Listing Advisor (LAD). A LAD coordinates the listing process and accompanies the listing entity for the duration of its DCSX listing.
The LAD is responsible for the correctness of the information shared by the listing entity and guarantees that the entity fulfills its obligations to local authorities, investors, and the DCSX. The LAD can therefore be described as the conduit between all parties related to a listing: custodian, brokers, notaries, lawyers, DCSX, local authorities, and company management.
