The Israel Securities Authority (ISA) was established under the Securities Law, 1968 and its mandate is to protect the interests of the investing public. Amongst other things, the Authority fights such phenomena as securities fraud, use of inside information and secreting material information from investors.
While the ISA does not have rule-making authority, it drafts and initiates virtually all primary and secondary legislation pertaining to securities law in Israel. In addition, it cooperates with government industries in formulating policies and laws pertaining to capital market activity.
