Our Routes to Market

JP Jenkins Direct

Direct cuts out broker fees, as no broker or intermediary is required, in turn reducing costs for the investor. Our fast and efficient online trading platform allows for share to be traded directly between a willing buyer/seller. 

All share certificates and trade alerts are sent via email with the only requirement for investors/shareholders to self-certify before creating an account. Live indicative pricing and volumes are shown on the platform, with the option to sort via trading volumes by date. 

All investors/shareholders will be able to access their client portal/portfolio including funds/current holdings and pending transactions. 

JP Jenkins Traditional

Trade with a wide range of stockbrokers and banks, you can even use your existing stockbroker.  There are no added fees for stockbrokers, investors or shareholders to trade.

Real time prices and volumes are shown on the JP Jenkins platform and trades can be executed immediately if buy/sell order limits match. If orders almost match, we can negotiate between the brokers to achieve a deal. JP Jenkins provides all the latest reports and updates on each company on the platform to allow for informed decision making.

The companies are required to sign up with a Registrar to enable shares to be settled through CREST (the electronic settlement system).


At JP Jenkins an unquoted trading platform admission cost for shells are circa £5,000. Our private cash shells and Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPAC’s) can be admitted with a minimum of only £50K cash subscription.

The JPJ cash shell/SPAC is a commercially practical method of avoiding the unnecessary duplicative prospectus costs of starting a shell on the public markets. We have a vast amount of experience in this space with our specialists having listed over 30 shells internationally.

With a private SPAC, suspensions do not apply, nor insider lock ups. We at JP Jenkins will be able to make a market for buyers and sellers prior to official relisting. Starting the private Spac is very inexpensive ands avoids duplicating prospectus requirements.


Cross Border Listing

Some foreign companies choose to dual list on the AIM market at economically unviable costs of circa $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 J P 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.

EXIT (Coming Soon)

The Exchange Investment Trust plc (EXIT) aims to free up liquidity and value of almost 30,000 former EIS/SEIS financed companies and locked in shareholders.

We offer to exchange these private company shares for shares in our swaps investment vehicle which will be trade-able.

Our highly experienced team will then proactively exploit opportunities to accelerate growth and realisations from these companies.
