Do your research!
Before making a decision to buy it is important to take a look at the financial, social and environmental performance and risks of the company you are interested in. Ethex makes conducting your due diligence as straightforward as possible by providing information on the product and the organisation to provide you with a comprehensive picture of what you’re potentially buying into.
For all our secondary market products, you can also click on the ‘latest prices’ tab for information on price and availability. Here you’ll find all the latest information on the trades that have been completed, offers that are open to sell and prices buyers are prepared to pay. Furthermore, at the end of the page you will find a graph showing past prices and trade volume.
Finalising the transaction
To buy: When you have looked at all the details you need to, simply click the orange “buy online” button for the product you’re interested in and our website will guide you through the process.
To sell: Under the “latest prices tab” for each product, there is a link to a “simple online” form that you need to fill in to sell your shares. We will ask for details from your certificate, which you will need to send us once we match you with a buyer. So please ensure you have the certificate to hand!
Once you have placed an order, Ethex will try to match it with another party. Once a match has been made, Ethex will contact you direct to complete the transaction.
It may not be possible to broker a transaction at all times because an investment may not be available to buy or sell at that time: it all depends on the market and whether we are able to match those selling with those who want to buy. If you want to know more, there is a handy ‘buying and selling guide’ in the Help and Guidance section of the Ethex website.
