This bulletin board service, run by Ethex, connects buyers and sellers of shares and bonds that have previously been issued. It is also known as a ’Secondary Market’.

Buying previously issued shares and bonds is an excellent means of backing a business you care about through supporting its liquidity, as well as purchasing investments with competitive returns. 

This differs from buying new shares or bonds from a business that is crowdfunding money with a stated target amount.

How does it work

Those interested in selling shares they hold in any of the below organisations complete the online selling form found by selecting the sell option. This offer is then added to the respective sale and given a reference number.

Those then interested in buying shares can then bid against these offers by completing their own respective online buyers form, ensuring that the reference number is included in their application. Buyer's offers are then passed onto the seller to accept or decline. If accepted then Ethex will organise the necessary paperwork and payment.

Further details on our policies can be found to the left.
