Aquis Stock Exchange (AQSE) is a leading UK-based exchange that is tailored to the needs of growth companies. The regulated and authorised exchange caters for primary and secondary offerings via the listing and trading of shares, as well as debt products.
The AQSE is divided into two segments: Access and Apex, with different levels of admission criteria. The Access market focuses on earlier stage growth companies, while Apex is the intended market for larger, more established businesses. This segmented approach allows the exchange to meet the differing needs of early and late stage businesses, while giving both access to a public market exchange. Companies listed on Access may have little or no trading history, while those on Apex have a proven growth strategy and higher standards in governance.
