1st Anniversary of the Competitive Auction System English Version Launched

The system’s English version was launched in June 2018 and facilitates foreign investors IPO participation in the Taiwan securities market. 119 bids of 32 IPOs were successfully submitted through the English interface, with a growing number of users.


To enhance the user experience, the TWSE simplified the sign-up and bidding processes of the system for foreign investors. Investors who want to submit more than one bid can also easily complete the submission by entering different bidding prices and quantities.


The TWSE will continue to make the system more user friendly and is receptive to feedback. Additional information as well as FAQs can be found on
