Listing Incentives

The development of an advanced capital market is one of the foremost objectives of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 plan and the linked Financial Sector Development Program (FSDP).

Through a series of initiatives, the FSDP aims to help the next generation of exciting private companies list on Saudi Exchange in partnership with the Kingdom's Capital Market Authority and relevant governmental entities.

Special incentives have been introduced to help increase the benefits for you as a Saudi Exchange issuer, and additional steps have been taken by several government ministries to remove unnecessary regulatory or legal obstacles that prevent great companies from listing on the market. 

The journey our issuers embark on at the Saudi Exchange is incredibly important to us, and we are committed to providing the necessary support to potential and existing issuers to increase their awareness of these incentives.
