The information below deals specifically with the listing of investment funds.


Euronext Dublin (formerly the Irish Stock Exchange) operates two markets for listing investment funds, the regulated market of Euronext Dublin (Regulated Market) and the Global Exchange Market (GEM).

The Regulated Market (formerly known as the Main Securities Market) is an EU Regulated Market as defined under the markets in financial instruments directive (MiFID). GEM is a Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF) as defined under MiFID.

A listing on GEM provides more flexibility than a listing on an EU Regulated Market. EU securities legislation, such as the Statutory Audit Directive, that generally applies to EU Regulated Markets, does not apply to issuers listed on GEM. The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) applies to issuers listed on both markets.

ALG Listing provides advice on all aspects of obtaining a listing on both the Regulated Market and GEM and is responsible for all communications with Euronext Dublin during the course of the application process and during the period of listing.
