Celebrating 10 years of Aquis
This year, we are celebrating a decade of Aquis Exchange: 10 years since Alasdair Haynes launched a fledgling business with a mission to revolutionise trading with a unique subscription pricing model.
We’re still the world’s first and only subscription-based exchange. But we’re also so much more than that. In 2023, we are also:
Aquis Markets: a major player in pan-European cash equities trading, operating lit and dark order books across 16 markets
Aquis Stock Exchange: UK primary market designed specifically for growth enterprises. We are fully focused on empowering the companies of the future, providing a growth channel from start-up to scale-up and beyond. We attracted 22 fantastic companies to IPO on our market last year: the most of any UK growth exchange.
Aquis Technologies: building better markets via the creation and licensing of cutting-edge, cost-effective exchange infrastructure technology and services. The first to offer both cloud-native and 24/7 products, we can efficiently launch institutional-grade modern exchanges quickly and reliably
It’s been an amazing decade for Aquis, and we’re just getting started.
