Development Corporation for Israel/ Israel Bonds - a FINRA-member broker dealer that underwrites securities issued by the State of Israel in the United States - ranks among Israel’s most valued economic and strategic resources,with a record of proven success spanning sixty-six years. Praised for its dependability, the Bonds organization has helped build every sector of Israel’s economy.
In a report issued in November 2016, Fitch Ratings Agency* cited Israel Bonds, noting, “Israel . . . has deep and liquid local markets, good access to international capital markets, an active diaspora bond program [italics added], and US government guarantees in the event of market disruption.”
Similarly, in August Moody’s* stated, “Israel can also depend upon financial support from the global Jewish community, mainly via the Israel Bonds program, and the U.S. government, especially in an emergency.”
Advocating investment and pride in Israel through the sale of Israel bonds is global in scope. Worldwide sales have surpassed $40 billion since the first bonds were issued in 1951. In 2016, sales of Israel bonds in the United States exceeded $1.127 billion, the largest domestic total in the organization’s history.
Proceeds from the sale of Israel bonds have played a decisive role in Israel’s rapid evolution into a groundbreaking, global leader in high-tech, greentech and biotech.
