These are independent, incorporated, commercial arms of the Israeli government that raise money overseas through the sale of carefully placed nontradable government bonds.  The Development Corporation for Israel, in particular, is a New York corporation and a NASD-registered broker/dealer operating in the US. It was established in 1951. In addition to The Development Corporation for Israel there is Canada Israel Securities, Ltd., an incorporated financial body operating in Canada under Canadian law, and there is Israel Bonds International, an incorporated Mexican financial institution operating in Mexico, as well as  South America, Europe, and countries other than the US and Canada. It was also established in 1951. Source: Israeli Ministry of Finance. The Government Debt Management Unit.
