Some foreign companies choose to dual list on the AIM market at economically unviable costs of circa $300-500k with no guarantees of extra liquidity and unattractive price spreads made by market makers. An increasing number of companies have instead decided to join the oldest established JP Jenkins (JPJ) trading platform at a fraction of the costs to trade on AIM.
In some cases, JPJ will invest a portion of the admission fee which can provide the initial liquidity to commence the dealing process. There are also a number of scaling private companies that are based internationally and want to have that reach to UK investors. JP Jenkins bridges the gap and allows for a UK listing for these growing businesses.
The admission fees are circa £10,000 for small cap companies (higher fees for larger companies). JP Jenkins does not make markets, the purchase and sale prices are matched. Foreign companies can reap all the benefits of having a UK trading facility without large costs and the additional burden of regulatory/listing requirements of other markets. Companies are increasingly aware of the importance of global markets and are participating in expanded investor awareness programmes inLondon.
At JP Jenkins, our tech enabled platform allows investors to be matched with excellent investment opportunities all-round the globe. We facilitate a number of currencies on our Direct platform which in turn allows investors, shareholders and companies to utilise our services. We believe that being siloed into one country does not allow our investors the broad opportunities to be a part of the bigger picture, as many great budding entrepreneurs and scaling businesses emerge from Europe, US and elsewhere.
We want to change the way people invest globally.
