Two market segments, one ambition

Early-stage companies cannot be expected to follow the same rules as more established companies. This is why we offer two segments within our growth market. With different rules, expectations, and opportunities, our segments provide the perfect environment for your company to grow.


A market segment designed to be the first stage of being a publicly quoted company. Access is aimed at early-stage companies with little or no trading history.


View companies listed on Access


A top tier market segment for larger, more established growth companies. Apex companies are expected to have a proven growth strategy and higher standards in governance.
