FAQs


The Australian Stock Exchange was established in 1987, with the passing of legislation by Australian Parliament which enabled the amalgamation of six independent state-based stock exchanges: Melbourne (est. 1861), Sydney (1871), Hobart (1882), Brisbane (1884), Adelaide (1887) and Perth (1889).

Then the Australian Stock Exchange merged with the Sydney Futures Exchange in 2006 to become the Australia Securities Exchange. The official name is ASX Limited but it’s most commonly referred to by the three letter code ASX.


As of September 2022, the market cap of all companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange combined is $2.3t; the total number of ASX-listed companies and securities is 2,297, with a split of 1,986 domestic and 157 foreign entities.
