Listing with TISE

We’re an agile exchange with global standards which has earned us significant international recognition.

There are many reasons for listing on The International Stock Exchange but the overarching advantages can be summarised as our responsive approach, competitive pricing, global standards of issuer regulation, premier locations and international recognitions.

Responsive approach

We are a nimble and agile exchange. The fact that the listings team has a strong rapport with Sponsors and Listing Agents, and that the market authority's Listing and Membership Committee (LMC) meets daily, means that we can turnaround applications in a timely manner. Responses to initial applications will be made within 3 business days from submission and subsequent reviews will be carried out within 1 business day. The Exchange is also able to consider more unusual transactions and move quickly to introduce new products.

Competitive pricing

Initial and annual fees vary according to product type (rather than market capitalisation) and are competitive compared to other similar exchanges and more reasonable than larger exchanges, considerably so in some cases. Latest fee schedules are available from this website.

Global standards

The Exchange's market authority applies global standards of regulation in a proportionate manner that appropriately balances the interests of issuers and investors. It is an Affiliate Member of the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) and an Affiliate Member of the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE). TISE is also an Associate Member of the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) and a Member of the International Capital Market Association (ICMA)

Premier locations

Headquartered in Guernsey and with staff operating across the international finance centres of Dublin, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Jersey and London, TISE offers a convenient and pragmatic marketplace from within the European timezone but outside the EU.

International recognitions

Our recognitions establish credibility around the world 

The Exchange’s international recognitions not only provide it with credibility around the world but they may also provide other benefits, such as widening the potential investor base for TISE-listed products.

For example, the UK tax authority, Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC), deems us to be a Recognised Stock Exchange for the purposes of investment by Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) and Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs). HMRC’s recognition also means that TISE qualifies as a Recognised Stock Exchange for the listing of UK Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). In addition, TISE is a Recognised Stock Exchange for the purposes of the Quoted Eurobond Exemption (QEE) in both the UK and Ireland. Other recognitions include the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and the German regulator, BaFin.

The latter means that TISE-listed products are automatically eligible assets as part of the ‘listed’ investment allocation of German insurance companies and German UCITS funds. We have carried out research which highlights how UCITS funds from all EEA jurisdictions can invest into TISE-listed products.
