How to List
The process for listing on TISE is straightforward, timely and cost-effective.
Appointing a Sponsor/Listing Agent
An issuer must have a Sponsor or Listing Agent appointed at all times while it is an applicant for listing or is listed. The Sponsor or Listing Agent acts as an intermediary between the issuer and the Exchange and responsibilities include preparing and lodging the formal listing application.
A Sponsor or Listing Agent must be a Listing Member of the Exchange which has met the eligibility criteria to act in respect of a particular product. A full list of current Members and their category of eligibility are available below.
Stage 1 - Initial applications
Response within 3 business days
The issuer, via the Sponsor or Listing Agent, files an initial submission with documents in draft.
- Once a submission is received which meets minimum information requirements then an analyst is assigned to the application
- The application is reviewed and a recommendation is made on the issuer's suitability for listing which is considered by the Listing and Membership Committee (LMC)
- Within 3 business days from submission of the initial application, a comments letter is then released (subject to payment of the listing application fee)
Stage 2 - Subsequent reviews
Response within 2 business days
For each subsequent review, including the submission of the final application, we will respond within 2 business days.
- Final applications must be received no later than midday on the intended day of listing for consideration by the LMC
- Once approved, a grant of listing letter is released (subject to payment of the first annual listing fee)
- Debt issues and open ended investment vehicles can elect to list at either 18:00 the same day or 08:00 the following morning. Listing takes place at 08:00 the next day for trading companies and closed ended investment vehicles
