JOHANNESBURG - The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) is undergoing a programme that includes around 60 job cuts.
According to the Stock exchange, this will produce savings of about one hundred and seventy million rand.
Chief executive Nicky Newton-King attributes South Africa’s low economic growth and credit downgrades for the decision.
For the first time in eight years, South Africa is currently in a technical recession.
The JSE, which employs around 430 staff, will also cut its technology operating expenditure.
