Rwandan Brewer Bralirwa Jumps on Market Debut

Shares of Rwandan Brewer Bralirwa jumped this week following their listing on the country's new Exchange on Monday.

The listing represented the beginning of Rwanda's new Exchange. The country plans to list additional firms over the coming year, starting with the expected IPO of Banque de Kigali in the first half of the year. For more information, please see here and here.
