Nxchange introduces a next generation stock exchange for direct trading in securities between companies and investors. The Amsterdam-based startup operates under a licence issued by the Dutch Ministry of Finance as a regulated market. Nxchange makes it possible to place and trade securities on a regulated platform without the intervention of a bank or broker being required. Companies can activate their network and communities to raise capital both on the central trading platform of Nxchange and using an integrated module on their own websites. A traditional IPO is usually an expensive and complex matter.
