AQUIS Exchange to Add Spanish Blue-Chips

Aquis Exchange, the subscription-based European equities exchange*, is to begin trading Spanish blue-chip stocks. The expansion of the Aquis Exchange trading universe by the addition of the 35 largest Spanish stocks will take place on Thursday, 20th August 2015 and brings the total number of markets covered by the exchange to 13.

Commenting on the announcement, Alasdair Haynes, CEO of Aquis Exchange, said: “We had always planned to have Spanish stocks on our platform as part of our phased roll out. Member appetite for investing in Spain has grown recently and we are responding to this demand. Also, as of early September, the Spanish clearing regime is to become partially interoperable thus making this market more attractive.”
