The Channel Islands Securities Exchange (CISE) has today completed its rebrand to The International Stock Exchange (TISE).

In addition, ahead of launching its presence in the Isle of Man later this week, TISE has announced that Carolyn Gelling will lead its presence on the ground in the island.

Fiona Le Poidevin, CEO of The International Stock Exchange Group (TISEG), said: “We have had strong support from our stakeholders since we announced plans to rebrand and it is very pleasing to be able to put that into action in such a short period of time and ahead of launching our presence in the Isle of Man. We have a very successful brand and ourkey attributes of being responsive and innovative remain unchanged so we have been careful to retain some continuity despite the change of name. However, it is also important to reflect the internationalisation of the business and especially our plans for the future. This is a very exciting time for the Exchange.”

TISE is launching its presence in the Isle of Man on Thursday 9 March. Mrs Gelling’s appointment as Head of Isle of Man Office is effective from the start of May.

Mrs Le Poidevin added: “I’m very pleased to announce Carolyn as our Head of Isle of Man Office. She brings with her significant experience and joins us from a senior role in the Isle of Man where I know she has an extensive network of contacts. I’m really looking forward to working with her in showcasing the opportunities that TISE offers to businesses in the Isle of Man and the UK.

“I’m already aware that there is significant interest in the island in being able to have straightforward and cost-effective access to an international exchange. In particular, there are Isle of Man businesses across a diverse range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, gaming, and technology in various guises, who may need to access capital to support their growth plans while there are also a number of local service providers who will be required to support this activity through the provision of listing sponsor or accountancy, legal and administration services. Carolyn will be highly visible but I would also encourage anyone who has an interest in finding out more to contact either Carolyn, myself or another member of the team.”
