Aquis Exchange PLC

(“Aquis” or the “Group”)

AQSE is delighted to announce that for the first time in the exchange’s history, APEX stocks are now available to trade electronically on the Hargreaves Lansdown trading platform, the UK’s number one platform for private investors.

As the next-generation stock exchange continually pushing to reshape capital markets, we would like to thank Hargreaves Lansdown for their support and look forward to working closely with the team there to add our ACCESS stocks in due course. 

Commenting on the development, Aquis Exchange, CEO Alasdair Haynes, said:

“I am very pleased that Hargreaves Lansdown is now including certain AQSE shares for electronic trading on its platform. I know that there is much client demand for this and we are looking forward to the scheme being extended to cover many more AQSE stocks as soon as possible. It is vital for the public to be able to access the shares quoted on the UK’s two stock exchanges easily, efficiently and, crucially, on an equal footing as each other.”

Tom Lee, Head of Trading Proposition, Hargreaves Lansdown, said:

“As market leader, we continue to evolve and digitise our trading service and offering APEX stocks via an easy online experience reflects our ambitions to redefine the savings and investing experience for investors.”

AQSE is home to over 100 securities and has welcomed 11 new companies to its growth market so far this year, with many more in the pipeline. As a division of leading exchange services company, Aquis Exchange PLC, AQSE is a business underpinned by a robust regulatory framework, overseen by the FCA, and has a strong service culture.
