Montenegro Stock Exchange was established in June 1993, pursuant to the Law on Money and the Capital Market. The first shareholders of the Stock Exchange were the Republic of Montenegro and four banks from Montenegro:

  • Montenegrobanka A.D. Podgorica;
  • Pljevaljska banka A.D. Pljevlja;
  • Beranska banka A.D. Berane;
  • Hipotekarna banka A.D. Podgorica

After that, in 1995, the Montenegro Stock Exchange harmonized its business activities with the Law on Stock Exchange, Stock Exchange Activities and Agents. In the meantime, there has been a redefinition of the State of Yugoslavia and certain authority of the federal institutions were taken by the institutions established in the Republic of Montenegro. Following the adoption of the Law on Securities, pursuant to its terms, the Montenegro Stock Exchange was recapitalized through the issue of new shares. After taking authority from Federal Commission of Yugoslavia for the Securities and Financial Markets, in December 2000, the Commission for Securities of the Republic of Montenegro, has given, after determining the fulfillment of all the necessary preconditions, the Montenegro Stock Exchange a business license. In the period from 1994 to 2000,the Montenegro Stock Exchange traded mostly gyro money and short-term securities, as it was allowed by the existing legislation. The first brokerage houses in Montenegro were established in 1996, and those were CG Broker, Holder broker and Monte Adria Broker. The transfer of authority of regulating securities markets from the Former Republic of Yugoslavia to its member states required the adoption of the Montenegrin Law on Securities, which did not regulate the issue of short-term securities or trading with them. In this manner, following the adoption of the aforementioned Law, in Montenegro Stock Exchange are trading long-term debt and equity securities.

On 20 September 2001, six Montenegrin financial institutions and Brokers Business Association founded the New Securities Exchange of Montenegro. In this period, the activities on the Montenegro Stock Exchange were running very low (due to the failure to meet the legal requirements for trade in securities). Montenegro Stock Exchange completed the final harmonization with the Law on Securities Montenegro in 2004, which led to a situation in which, until the end of 2010, there were two stock exchanges operating. The start of operations of the New Securities Exchange of Montenegro is significant because for the first time in Montenegro capital market transaction were executing by electronic trading system.

In the beginning of 2011, the two Montenegrin stock exchanges were integrated, through the merge of the New Securities Exchange of Montenegro to the Montenegro Stock Exchange. The first working day on the single Montenegro Stock Exchange was 10 of January 2011. In overall shareholder structure of the Montenegro Stock Exchange twelve financial institutions from Montenegro participate with approximately of 93% ownership.
