April 15, 2013
LONDON – 15 April 2013 – Aquis Exchange, the proposed pan-European stock exchange, has appointed Mark Spanbroek as a non-executive director, effective immediately.
Aquis Exchange, which has applied for regulatory approval from the UK Financial Conduct Authority, was established in October 2012 and has been created to operate a pan-European equities trading exchange and develop and license exchange software. Aquis Exchange is set to revolutionise the European trading landscape through its introduction of a fixed monthly subscription pricing model. Currently, over 90% of European equity trading in each individual country takes place on just two exchanges and the aim of Aquis Exchange is to bring fresh competition into the marketplace and to lower the trading costs maintained by the existing duopoly.
