A listing on TISE is attractive as it is a recognised stock exchange which is small enough to be nimble with competitive fees and global standards of regulation proportionate to the business carried out to provide investor protection without unduly burdening the issuers.

We have the experience to give you confidence and a reputation for quality, combined with the ability to be responsive with competitive fees. The Isle of Man provides a stable and secure environment, with high levels of compliance and tax transparency and room for growth.

Listing on TISE is popular for many reasons including:

      • Entities seeking a lower cost alternative in a well regulated environment
      • Companies seeking to raise funds via equity or debt
      • Companies seeking some liquidity
      • Owners seeking to facilitate retirement, succession plans or an exit route
      • UK REITS seeking a lower cost alternative which meets the UK requirements

The International Stock Exchange (“TISE”)

  • TISE is deemed to be a Recognised Stock Exchange by the UK Tax Authority, HMRC for the purposes of SIPPs and ISAs; which is a reflection on its high standards and appropriate regulation.
  • TISE’s market authority is an Affiliate member of the International Organisation of Securities and has received recognition from the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority BaFin which allows German UCITS funds to invest into products listed on TISE.
  • TISE is a smaller exchange and turns around applications in a timely manner (typically 4-6 weeks from start to finish) and they can consider more unusual transactions.
  • Fees are competitive compared to other smaller exchanges and considerably cheaper than larger exchanges.
  • TISE’s market authority applies global standards of regulation proportionate to the business carried out to provide investor protection whilst issuers are not unduly burdened.
  • TISE has also introduced an Isle of Man segment of its Official List for trading companies which have operational control and their principal place of business in the Isle of Man.
