The Korean Stock Exchange is a smaller division of the bigger KRX – or KoreaExchange. It wasn’t until 2005 that the Korean Stock Exchange was formed after the merger between Korean Futures Exchange and KOSDAQ.
As it stands, the Korean Stock Exchange makes markets in equities, stock index futures, bonds, and stock index options as the only securities exchange operator. The headquarters are located in Busan, though Seoul is the base for cash markets and oversight.
This page will take you through the history of the Korean Stock Exchange, a summary of the companies listed on it, and information about the types of stocks traded on the exchange.
