Aquis Exchange

Aquis Exchange is set to revolutionize the European trading landscape with the introduction of subscription pricing and innovative order types.

Aquis Exchange is authorized and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as the operator of a Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF).

Aquis Exchange was established in October 2012 and has been created to operate a pan-European equities trading exchange and develop exchange software. SIX x-clear Ltd offers clearing in all pan-European markets, with the exception of Spain.

The aim of Aquis Exchange is to bring fresh competition into the marketplace in order to lower trading costs. Aquis Exchange’s subscription pricing works on a similar model to that of the telecoms industry and is designed to encourage participation from all categories of professional trading firms. Users will be charged according to the message traffic they generate, rather than a percentage of the value of each stock that they trade different pricing bands are offered to accommodate varying degrees of activity. There is a very low usage band for small firms, which are traditionally disadvantaged by the pricing structure of the incumbent exchange. At the other end of the pricing structure, there is a top category where usage is unlimited (subject to a “fair usage” policy).
