IPSX: the world’s first regulated stock exchange dedicated to initial public offerings
IPSX is the world’s first regulated stock exchange dedicated to initial public offerings and the secondary market trading of companies owning single or multiple real estate assets, giving property owners access to a wide pool of international investors.
We spoke to Roger Clarke, Managing Director and Head of Capital Markets at IPSX, about the company's plans for rolling out further exchanges across the globe and why the UK was the obvious place to launch its platform.
What does your company do?
IPSX is the international property securities exchange. We are a new stock exchange based here in London and the UK's seventh recognised exchange. We were founded five years ago now.
It took a while to get our full regulatory approvals from the Financial Conduct Authority – quite rightly that bar is set very high. We all benefit from the fact that the FCA has a tough reputation in approving new markets. That now means we are bringing a degree of liquidity, transparency and regulatory protections to a new asset class – real estate – for the very first time. We are the only regulated stock exchange in the world doing this.
IPSX Wholesale is a market exclusively for institutional and professional investors.
