Benefits of Listing

Visibility

  • On average, companies listed on TSX are covered by four analysts, whereas TSXV-listed companies are covered by one analyst
  • Canadian companies that are inter or dual-listed on a U.S. exchange are covered by an average of nine analysts (more coverage than their counterparts that list only on a U.S. Exchange)

Index Eligibility

  • Companies listed on TSX are eligible to be included in the S&P/TSX Composite Index and other S&P/TSX sector indices; TSXV listed companies are eligible to be included in the S&P/TSX Venture Composite Index
  • According to Benefits Canada, almost one-third of Canadian pension fund assets invested in Canadian stocks are managed using index-based investing strategies, benefiting companies with increased visibility and improved investor awareness

Institutional Investment

  • In addition to retail investors, a listing on TSX/TSXV can get an issuer noticed by the Canadian institutional investment community. Canadian portfolio managers funnel 70% of their money into Canadian assets

Market Support

  • Canadian investors and analysts tend to be better-informed and risk tolerant, have lower turnover in their portfolios, and more likely to stick with Canadian investments for the longer term

Well-regulated and Fully-automated Marketplace

  • Because most of our trading rules are built into our automated systems, TSX and TSXV ensure consistent treatment of all orders, enhancing investor confidence in the fairness of our market

Expertise and Innovation

  • Our expertise expands beyond our traditional base of the resource sectors, to include global leaders in Financial Services, as well as hundreds of companies in the dynamic innovation sectors, such as Technology, Clean Technology and Life Sciences
