BISX Chief Executive Officer, Keith Davies, commented on the listing of the Funds. “We continue to enjoy the great working relationship we have with Winterbotham as we expand the BISX Mutual Fund Listing Facility. They have done a tremendous job of incorporating the listing facility into their client service offerings and discussing the merits of a BISX Listing with their clients. The result has been a great success and we have seen the benefits with increased listings as their clients continue to choose BISX listings. The BISX Mutual Fund listing facility demonstrates the synergies that exist between the Exchange and the off-shore financial sector, with both the Exchange and Winterbotham and their clients benefiting from this relationship. We look forward to passing 100 mutual fund listings this year and also to celebrating the 20th year of BISX’s incorporation.”
