The London Stock Exchange was today opened by a delegation of chief executives of Israeli companies and UK ambassador to Israel Matthew Gould.

The Israeli companies are considering opportunities for raising capital in London. Delegates will join an IPO seminar at the Stock Exchange, after which they will participate in three days of meetings with investors, underwriters, advisers and analysts.

The visit of this Israeli delegation was organised by Adv Amira Bardichev, Senior Trade Advisor at the British Embassy in Israel.

Since the beginning of this year eight additional Israeli companies have listed on the Main and the AIM markets, raising a total of £535m.
