The AQSE Growth Market is a multilateral trading facility with a flexible approach that makes it more suitable for SME companies seeking access to investment than the AQSE Main Market, a pan-European trading system designed to rival the FTSE 100.

Why list on AQSE Growth Market?

  • Ability to move very quickly, with an approximate timeline of 8-10 weeks from the beginning of the process to listing
  • Relatively simple to fulfil eligibility criteria, with a minimum free float of 10%, 24 months of audited accounts and the appointment of one non-executive director
  • AIM-listed companies are required to appoint a Nominated Advisor (NOMAD) and a Broker, whereas AQSE-listed companies only require a Corporate Advisor
  • Suits entrepreneurial companies seeking a faster listing with lower ongoing obligations and costs
  • Three tier ‘nursery school to university’ system to support and appropriately regulate companies at different stages of their growth journey

The Growth Market is divided into two segments

Access and Apex – with different levels of admission criteria appropriate to different stages of a company’s growth cycle. The Access market focuses on earlier stage growth companies and is a good stepping stone to other markets, while Apex is the intended market for larger, more established businesses.
