Invest on PSX from Overseas

ImageForeign persons and institutions as well as non-resident Pakistanis (NRPs) can invest in securities listed on Pakistan Stock Exchange. They can benefit from potential growth opportunities available through investing in the Exchange. For non-resident Pakistanis, investing in PSX is specially an attractive venture as it will enable them to benefit from the competitive returns from the Pakistani Capital Market while being stakeholders in their homeland’s economy.

Foreign investors are considered at par with the local investors at PSX and they can acquire 100% of the ownership in all companies except the restricted industries. There is no extra taxation for foreign investors and they are allowed repatriation of profit and investment at any time with the approval of State Bank of Pakistan.

There are two ways an investor from abroad can invest on PSX. One is through opening a Special Convertible Rupee Account (SCRA) and the other is through opening of Roshan Digital Account (NRP Rupee Value Account – NRVA)
