ISE is 14th best workplace in Europe and highest in Ireland

The Irish Stock Exchange (ISE) has been ranked as the 14th Best Workplace in Europe in the small to medium category (50-500 employees) by Great Place to Work® (GPTW). This achievement follows the ISE's win as the Best Medium Workplace in Ireland earlier this year.  The ISE is the highest ranking financial services workplace in Europe and the best Irish workplace in our category.

A people business

Deirdre Somers, ISE CEO, said “We are thrilled again to receive recognition on a European level by GPTW. The ISE is fundamentally a people business and we are committed to maintaining and building on our high trust and high performance culture for our fantastic team who enable us to achieve our strategic goals.”

The ISE’s strategic vision is to be the #1 EU exchange choice for issuers of global fixed income, funds and Irish securities. At the end of December 2015, the ISE had over 34,000 securities listed on its four markets making it the #1 exchange in the world for listing debt securities and investment funds according to statistics published by the World Federation of Exchanges.
