Can the Irish Stock Exchange Attract British Firms?

Can the Irish Stock Exchange attract British firms?

The Iseq has been hit pretty hard since the Brexit vote, which is no surprise given the reliance on the British economy many Irish firms have for sales and profits. There‘s been some speculation that many of the companies, including Grafton, DCC and Smurfit that moved their primary listing to London may return to our shores, but Brexit throws up as many problems as opportunities for the Irish market. The Irish Stock Exchange should be a natural home for companies fleeing London. Ireland is a solid member of the European Union, the exchange itself is well run and regarded across Europe. But is it big enough to compete with Frankfurt and Paris for companies seeking additional European listings? Probably not.
