From its launching in 1951 and continuing through the present day the, Israel Bonds organization has played a unique role in Israel’s rapid progression from struggling agrarian nation to global economic powerhouse. Proceeds realized through the sale of Israel bonds have helped cultivate the desert, build transportation networks, create new industries, resettle immigrants, and increase export capability. Today, investing in Israel bonds supports a nation of extraordinary innovation that continues to push the boundaries of modern technology.
Israel Bonds has been widely praised for its extraordinary legacy of achievement. In the words of statesman Shimon Peres, “The investment of Israel bonds in Israel’s economy has reaped huge dividends.”
Since its launching in May 1951, the organization’s ensuing success has been remarkable – securing worldwide sales approaching $40 billion, facilitating the rapid development of Israel’s economy and building a global partnership with Israel.
Development Corporation for Israel, commonly known as Israel Bonds, is a broker-dealer that underwrites securities issued by the State of Israel in the United States. In 2013 and 2014, U.S. Israel bond investments surpassed $1.1 billion, an unprecedented domestic sales achievement.
Israel bonds are included in the portfolios of a diverse array of investors. Global sales since the first Israel bonds were issued in 1951 have exceeded $37 billion.
