It should be noted that all the companies mentioned decided to come and trade on the local stock exchange as part of a strategy for attracting investments from among Israeli institutional factors, as well as from among the entire Israeli investing public.



At Ahuzat Beit, they identified the trend and, together with the Securities Authority, built a model that lowers the companies' obligation to report to the local stock exchange to Israeli investors, along with reducing the need to publish a designated prospectus.



Itai Ben Zeev, CEO of the Stock Exchange

, told Walla! Money that "the companies' joining the stock exchange as a duality has contributed to an increase in their trading volumes in both the foreign market and the aggregate trading volumes.


The companies receive a trading sequence with the trading of their shares on the Israeli stock exchange, and with the entry of our flagship indices, such as TA-35 and TA-125, passive and active demand will arrive that will support their share price. So the double listing is a WIN-WIN for everyone involved. "



Lowering the regulatory barriers also lowered the total costs required for companies in favor of trading on the local stock exchange, alongside the possibility of increasing the audience of investors and trading in the stock. All of these appeal mainly to small and medium-sized companies that are traded abroad and need a trading booster in the form of local investors.



But not only companies that are already traded abroad are on the stock market, And raise funds through it.



In fact, the TASE seeks to bite into the capital raising market currently dominated by venture capital funds. According to the stock exchange, about 10.5 thousand start-ups were established in the last decade (until 2020), which raised about $ 55 billion during that period. 90% of the capital was raised from foreign investors - mainly through venture capital funds.

, added to Walla! Money: And both in the US.



In addition, Israeli institutional investors can examine their investment in these companies more easily, thus navigating significant sums to them. And one of the most significant advantages is the company set a medium-sized capital markets in the US, is classified as a giant Israeli capital market, and as such it will receive exposure and media coverage, and technical assistance.



Today desirable technology companies consider raising capital Tel Aviv as a preliminary step for raising the US, for two years The latter indicated that the Israeli capital market knows how to generously price companies with significant growth potential. The procedure is currently cheap, and is estimated to cost about a month to 3 months.



It should be noted that the local stock market is not glittering for everyone.

The large Israeli technology companies that are currently traded mainly on Wall Street do not yet find it attractive.

In a conversation with the executives of some of the companies, Walla!

Money, because "there is really no incentive for a company that trades abroad and sells mainly there, to trade here.



"Whoever issues for the first time is a different story and maybe it's really worth it, but companies that have been trading for a long time on a leading American stock exchange, and are already crossing the world's largest investor ocean, will not find any advantage in the local lake."
