The International Stock Exchange (TISE), formerly known as the Channel Islands Securities Exchange, has reported 331 new listings during the first half of 2017.
This represents a 45 percent increase year on year and takes the total number of listed securities on TISE to 2,411 at the end of June. During the first six months of the year, the total value of all listed securities on TISE increased by 1.7 percent to reach GBP399bn (USD513bn) at the end of June.
TISE has also won an award for the Most Innovative Capital Markets Listing in the 2017 Fintech Awards run by trade publication Wealth and Finance International. This was in recognition of the fact that when GABI plc was admitted to TISE's Official List in December 2016, it became the first regulated bitcoin fund to be listed on any exchange globally.
Fiona Le Poidevin, CEO of TISE, commented: "I'm delighted that we have won this award. I had followed GABI since its prominent launch in 2014 and so it was very exciting for TISE to be able to play a part in the next chapter of this innovative structure."
