The Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) has rolled out a mobile version of its popular Rules & Regulations Directory to facilitate browsing on mobile phones and tablets.
The move makes it even easier for domestic and foreign visitors to access all laws and regulations governing Taiwan’s securities market, helping them better understand Taiwan’s regulatory environment. The greater
accessibility is also expected to improve transparency and support the further internationalization of the Taiwan capital market.
Since launching in April 2014, the Directory has attracted more than five million visitors, including listed-companies, brokerages, asset management companies, accounting firms and legal firms. The English version of the Directory is proving particularly popular with foreign investors, attracting an average 130,000 visitors a month since the beginning of 2016. These foreign visitors hailed from Hong Kong, Singapore, the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom, India, Mainland China and Australia, among others, in descending order.
Regulations available via the Directory include rules for primary and secondary listings, corporate governance, clearing and settlement, margin trading, ETFs, market monitoring and regulation, among others.
