The importance of our global capital markets has never been so great; we intend to illustrate what two large exchanges can achieve when they cooperate.”

Itai Ben Ze’ev, CEO of the Stock Exchange (pictured above):
“Dual listing is a fundamental interest of the State of Israel and of the companies themselves whose goal, on the one hand, is to strengthen the companies’ ties to Israel and, on the other hand, to allow companies to enjoy the benefits of listing on the largest stock exchange in the world. The move is even more requested in periods of instability and uncertainty in the markets. In addition, The two exchanges will work together to develop various financial products that will contribute to the diversification and refinement of the Israeli capital market. The agreement with the New York Stock Exchange is a natural step for the continued momentum of the Israeli Stock Exchange, which continues to show growth in all areas of activity, as well as the strength and stability of the leading indices in this turbulent period.”
