THREE YEARS OF A BETTER WAY

Spectrum Markets launched in October 2019, designed for transparency, integration and openness while enabling unparalleled access to the markets beyond traditional trading hours with 24/5 on-venue trading for the first time in Europe.

Spectrum Markets has re-shaped the market through a series of world-firsts. The introduction of intraday issuance creates more opportunities to trade, while simultaneous trading across borders on a single ISIN makes pan-European trading truly seamless, empowering retail investors to trade more freely and to flexibly manage their portfolios. And the introduction of trading on crypto-asset underlyings demonstrates our commitment to always being at the leading edge of technological development, creating new possibilities and broadening the horizons of retail investors.

The flexible architecture of Spectrum Markets allows for rapid growth as we add new products and capacities to our venue. By the end of our second year of operation, Spectrum Markets had witnessed a staggering 172% year-on-year increase in trading volume with over one billion securitised derivatives traded. Proof, if it were needed, of the value that our venue is adding to the retail trading industry.

Further underlining the value of Spectrum Markets is the trust placed in us by a growing list of members on our venue. Always looking ahead, we continue to welcome new members, rapidly becoming Europe's most trusted trading partner, constantly innovating and forging new partnerships. Together we are working hard to deliver A Better Way for retail trading.
