The Israel Securities Authority (ISA) said on Sunday it approved a plan to allow Israeli companies traded in Singapore, Hong Kong and Toronto to easily dual-list on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE).

“These are markets whose regulatory level is as high as in Israel and dual-listing could encourage trade on TASE,” ISA Chairman Shmuel Hauser said.

In 2000, the dual-listing program was launched for Israeli companies traded in New York and London and since then, more than 60 companies have dual-listed.

Companies that choose to dual-list are subject to the rules of the foreign country and may publish reports in English.
