We're on your side

We’re challenging the monopoly of historical markets by building growth and confidence in our market model to deliver free and better execution for end investors and brokers.

Our history

Equiduct was founded to help retail brokers overcome the challenges of the fragmentation created by the introduction of MiFID. Our aim has always been to deliver better value and execution quality for retail investors across Europe.

We’re redefining what it means to be a pan-European exchange bringing better execution and value to the retail investment community.
