Aquis Exchange launches new EU dark pool, Aquis Matching Pool (AMP)

 

Aquis Exchange, the pan-European large and mid-cap equities trading arm of Aquis Exchange PLC, is pleased to announce the launch of its European dark trading venue, the Aquis Matching Pool ("AMP") EU.

This marks the expansion of Aquis Exchange's dark trading service, which was previously only available as a UK venue, and complements its existing suite of cost-effective, low market-impact order books and trading services. It is anticipated that this will result in increased trading flow, market share and subsequent revenue for the MTF business.

Furthermore, Aquis Exchange anticipates completion of the migration of its existing UK dark pool ("UK AMP") onto its in-house technology on 19 September 2022.

As previously announced, the UK AMP was assumed by the Group from UBS in April 2022 via a seamless shift in ownership, with no disruption to existing services.

David Stevens, Chief Revenue Officer, said: "We are very excited about the launch of AMP. Aquis has built its reputation on being innovative and agile, creating a highly differentiated offering for displayed trading and our aim is to bring these characteristics to dark trading.

Dark trading continues to grow in Europe and we intend for Aquis to be an important player in this market. The launch of EU AMP therefore represents an important milestone for Aquis as we continue to grow our presence in this space."

Aquis Exchange operates lit and dark order books, covering 16 European markets. For its lit books, Aquis Exchange uses a subscription pricing model which works by charging users according to the message traffic they generate, rather than a percentage of the value of each stock that they trade and does not allow aggressive non-client proprietary trading, which has resulted in lower market impact and signalling risk on Aquis Exchange than other trading venues in Europe.
