Irish Stock Exchange becomes PLC

The Irish Stock Exchange has become a public listed company this morning

The move comes after a change in its corporate structure.

The PLC will assume the same services as the old company, while the staff of the ISE Ltd will be employed by the new company.

ISE chief executive Deirdre Somers said the new structure would bring the ISE “more in line with corporate norms”. She said it would also allow for “greater flexibility for our future development”
