The Irish Stock Exchange (“ISE”) is widely regarded as the leading location in the world for the listing of investment funds. Its commercially driven listing requirements, speedy and efficient listing process and very competitive listing fees has led to its impressive growth with a listing providing an easy method of promoting a published net asset value, and having a “marked to market” price. An ISE listing is a valuable marketing tool for an investment fund enabling it to target certain categories of institutional investors and investors in particular jurisdictions who are prohibited or restricted from investing in unquoted securities.
Duff & Phelps has a dedicated and innovative team of professionals with extensive knowledge of the ISE listing rules and regulations and their application to a wide variety of fund types. The services we offer include:
