Market places are an important part of well-functioning capital markets. In keeping with our approach to creating value for businesses and owners we recognise the need for companies, shareholders and investors to have options regarding liquidity.

Through the market places that we operate we aim to allow companies to take control of their future and to provide investors with unique investment opportunities.
