The Listing Code for Debt Securities allows for the listing of the following: bonds, asset-backed securities, and derivative securities. Please refer to the Listing Code for Debt Securities for formal definitions, restrictions, and criteria.

Why should I list my Debt Securities on GSX?

It is the ambition of the Gibraltar Stock Exchange to be a leading stock exchange for the listing of Debt Securities, providing a practical listing service that combines speed to market with a competitive cost structure

Listing debt securities on the Main Market with a prospectus drafted in accordance with the Prospectus Directive may provide companies with a number of advantages, including full passporting and promotional rights to professional investors throughout the EU, and UCITS eligibility.

The Gibraltar Stock Exchange’s Main Market is also recognised by HMRC under the Income Tax Act 2007. Securities listed on the Main Market are eligible for the UK SIPPs and ISAs market.

Can you provide some practical examples of listing debt securities?

The Listing Code for Debt Securities offers issuers with a wide range of structuring and listing solutions to meet their needs. For example:

  • Small to Medium Sized Enterprises raising assets in the EU Capital Markets to diversify funding sources;
  • Reinsurance companies structuring catastrophe bonds, Insurance-Linked Securities, and other collateralised reinsurance vehicles within the EU; and
  • Non-EU asset managers wishing to raise their profile within the EU

To discuss these and other applications, please contact GSX or a Member Firm

How do I list my Debt Securities on GSX?

Applicants must first appoint a Member Firm which is qualified to list debt securities (Class 2) and is responsible for dealing with the Gibraltar Stock Exchange on all matters relating to the application, listing, and continuing obligations of the debt securities.

On both of these matters, please contact GSX directly or a Member Firm.

How long does it take to list Debt Securities?

GSX understands that speed is important for issuers bringing debt securities to market. GSX guarantees turnaround times on its review of your application enabling you to plan your listing with certainty.

As soon as your Listing Member initially submits your prospectus and/or listing documentation to GSX, the following process and timetable shall apply:

  • Review by GSX and the Listing Authority. For both Main Market and Global Market listings, your documents are reviewed by GSX initially. Comments are returned within 5 business days on the first submission and 3 business days on any subsequent submission.
  • Final Submission. Once comments are cleared, for Main Market listings GSX will submit the final prospectus and listing documents to the GFSC (Gibraltar’s regulator) for approval, which has a further 5 days in which to raise any final issues. For the Global Market, listings will proceed to approval internally.
  • Approval. GSX will inform the Member Firm when the prospectus is approved by the GFSC  (Main Market) or GSX (Global Market) and that the securities are ready to be admitted to listing.
  • Publication. The approved prospectus (Main Market) or Listing Particulars (Global Market) is published by the GFSC  / GSX respectively. The securities are included in the Official List.
  • Announcement of admission. GSX announces the admission of your securities to the relevant market.
