From a Member perspective, the shift in ownership is planned to be seamless with no disruption to the service as there will be no immediate regulatory or technical changes necessary. Clients, including UBS, will continue to benefit from an efficient, cost-effective marketplace with significant liquidity.
Once the transfer is complete, the venue will be known as Aquis Matching Pool (AMP).
This transfer forms part of the planned 2022 financial targets for AQXE and is anticipated to have a relatively small positive impact on AQXE results during 2022.
