Our Proposition

Built on a culture of responsiveness and innovation, The International Stock Exchange (TISE) provides financial markets and securities services to public and private companies.

TISE is best known as one of Europe’s major professional bond markets. Its Qualified Investor Bond Market (QIBM) is the leading market in Europe for listing high yield bonds and is experiencing strong growth in structured finance and securitisation transactions. TISE also has a pool of ‘domestic’ equities and a significant share of the market for listed UK Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), as well as hosting a comprehensive sustainable finance segment, TISE Sustainable.

In 2023, TISE launched a unique offering for the private markets. TISE Private Markets provides unlisted companies with a dedicated marketplace through which they can access an integrated set of tailored electronic solutions, including trading, settlement and registry management.

Headquartered in Guernsey and with staff operating across Dublin, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Jersey and London, TISE has over 4,000 securities on its Official List with a total market value of more than £650 billion. 

Looking Forward

In an increasingly complex world that is driven by changes in regulation and the acceleration of industry automation, we aren't standing still but continuously improving our offering aligned with market and client demands.

We remain focussed on what we are good at: the efficient and secure listing of bonds. Whilst we are committed to maintaining our market leader position in specific segments of the international bond markets, such as high yield bonds, we are expanding our geographical reach to scale up our listing business in the UK, Europe and internationally. The expansion of our product and service offering will help to enlarge and diversify our revenue streams and mitigate business concentration risk in the future.

We are continuing to actively develop new products and markets. In 2021 we developed our new trading system, NOVA, which is a state-of-the-art auction system that provides an attractive addition to our equity market. The improved price discovery and transaction model launched in 2022.

Another offering under development is TISE Private Markets, a concept whereby unlisted, private companies can register and trade their shares amongst a controlled group of investors. Fully disintermediated, automated, and thus cost efficient for privately owned SMEs, we intend to introduce this in 2023. 

Attractive for Investors

TISE (mnemonic: TISEG) has an established record of delivering sustained growth and is well placed to deliver significant medium term value.

  • Strong improvement in operating ratio

  • Improvement in profit margins

  • CAGR in excess of 10%

  • Dividend policy maintained at 50% of taxed profits
