Abstract: This paper assesses the viability of the Irish Stock Exchange. Overall the prognosis is positive with a few notable exceptions. On the downside some trading characteristics including thin trading and an uncompetitive market structure are identified. However on the upside there are a number of reasons to be confident for the future of Irish equity investments. Importantly, the risk and return performance compares favourably with other major equity markets since 1990. This relatively strong performance continues in the new millennium even for the more volatile climate facing investors. The analysis suggests that the ISEQ offers opportunities for international diversification and the use of exploitable trading rules.
