As we continue our journey in Italy, we're excited to announce one of Italy’s leading independent investment banks, Equita, joins Spectrum Markets as an intermediary.
Through Spectrum Markets, Equita can now expand access to pan-European trading, passing-on new levels of flexibility and openness to their clients. As a member of our venue, Equita will enable its institutional clients to offer securitised derivatives trading on Spectrum Markets to their retail customers and will have the option to open the door to issuers on Spectrum requiring quick access to potential market making services.
“This new partnership with Spectrum on securitised derivatives trading, and potential market making services, is in line with the further diversification we are putting in place, with our Global Markets division seeking to provide our clients with a complete and innovative product offering,” Cristiano Rho, Co-Head Global Markets, Equita.
“Innovation has always been at the heart of our business, and this is more important today than ever before, as financial markets are evolving at such a rapid pace, particularly when it comes to serving retail investors.” Gennaro Vicidomini, Deputy Head of Proprietary Trading at Equita.
Best-in-class, pan-European trading ecosystem
Equita is renowned for leading the way on innovation in Italian banking, being amongst the first players in Italy to offer alternative investment solutions to traditional portfolio management. Part of the reason they’re a perfect match for Spectrum Markets, a venue built for the transparency and openness unlike that seen before within the Italian market –one we are certain that retail investors of the future will demand.
They are one of the largest independent trading floor in Italy, offering brokerage services on a range of products and have a well-respected research team covering 96% of the total capitalisation of the Italian equity market, Spectrum Markets will enhance the ability of Equita’s advisors to provide vital data and insights to their clients.

This membership and the memberships announced early this year, combined with our latest technical infrastructure partnerships with SIA and Euronext Securities Milan, demonstrates our plug & play solution in action and showcases how we work with members to create a bespoke solution that is appropriate to their needs. Spectrum will continue to onboard members and credible partners in continuation of our pan-European expansion throughout 2022.
