In brief

Established in 1951, the Israel Bonds enterprise ranks among Israel’s  economic and strategic resources, the Bonds organisation has helped build every sector of Israel’s economy.

Following its launch in New York, the Bonds organisation - formally known as Development Corporation for Israel in the U.S. – began operations in Canada (Canada-Israel Securities, Ltd.) and then Europe and Latin America (Development Company for Israel {International} Ltd.).

Although Israel bonds are not rated, the Bonds enterprise has been consistently cited by ratings agency as a factor in their assessments.  In a June 2018 report for example, Moody’s stated, “Israel's financing will also benefit from considerable foreign demand in its Israel Bonds program aimed at the
Jewish diaspora, which has shown a willingness to support in (Israel) times of external shocks.”

Warren Buffett, the world’s most famous investor who holds Israel bonds in his portfolio, called investing in Israel bonds “a deserved endorsement of a remarkable country,”

Advocating investment and pride in Israel through the sale of Israel bonds is global in scope.  Worldwide sales have surpassed $42 billion since the first bonds were issued in 1951. In 2018, annual global Israel bond sales exceeded $1 billion for the sixth consecutive year.

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.
