The origins of the Bombay Stock Exchange, Asia’s oldest, can be traced to informal gatherings of Gujarati and Parsi businessmen in front of the city’s Town Hall in the 1850s. It was in 1928, that the Native Share and Stock Brokers’ Association moved to its current location; the present 29-storey Phiroze Jeejeebhoy Towers, in which the Exchange is housed, was constructed by 1980. The BSE has the world’s largest number of companies (over 5,000) listed on it
