Furthermore the study examined the extent to which information accessibility affects performance of DSE. The finding of the research study reveals that there is lack of instruments or product diversification in the DSE relative to income investors. Moreover, the study found out that DSE listing conditions are too stringent for many companies to comply.Finally, the study reveals that there is lack of adequate financial security education to investors in the capital market. It was found out lack of instrument diversification does not provide incentive for investing in the DSE. From the study it is recommended to introduce new instruments at DSE for capital market development in Tanzania. Furthermore it is recommended that the government should come with the new policy of repositioning Tanzania for the gas economy, whereby TPDC will be allowed and helped out to go for IPO. Approximately, 750,000 Trillions of Tanzanian shillings will be raised through IPO and sought to contribute significantly to the efficiency of DSE
