Irish Stock Exchange
The Irish Stock Exchange (the Exchange) is a key element of the financial infrastructure of Ireland. Its roots stretch back to 1793 when the Exchange first opened for trading in Dublin.
As a regulated European stock exchange the Exchange has developed listing standards of the highest quality for its listed securities which include equities and corporate bonds of companies, covered warrants, government bonds, investment funds and specialist securities.
Trading on the Exchange is primarily conducted in the equities and Government bond markets on the ISE Xetra trading platform and EuroMTS platform respectively. The highest regulatory standards apply to participation in the Exchange's markets to ensure the protection of investors and the integrity of the market.
In recent years the Exchange has established a leading position globally in investment funds and specialist securities listings and this continues to be a growth area for the Exchange.
The Exchange is committed to developing new products and continuously improving the cost effectiveness and efficiency of its infrastructure to further enhance Ireland's capital markets.
