TORONTO Sept 17TH 2013 - Aequitas Innovations Inc. is a company comprised of a group of market participants and corporations working to launch a new user-focused Canadian stock exchange that restores the original purpose of markets: the efficient allocation of capital between issuer and investor as a central force driving the Canadian economy.
Partnered with some powerful financial allies, including Barclays Corporation, BCE Inc, CI Investments; IGM Financial; ITG Canada; OMERS Capital Markets; PSP Public Markets and RBC Dominion Securities. Aequitas' new exchange would integrate a range of new solutions that its advocates say are overdue and necessary to fix what is broken in the current equity market landscape and bring markets back into balance.
Currently the Ontario Securities Commission has issued a Notice and Request for Comment that is available for public participation, with a closing date of Friday September 27th 2013. Everyone is encouraged to make their voice heard.
On this, Part One of this two-part program on JMN Network Radio, Aequitas CEO Jos Schmitt discusses;
-Collapse of investor confidence in existing markets, the struggle to find entrepreneurial funding and the increasing rate of dealer drop-out
-How existing marketplaces have lost their vision and how high frequency traders have laid waste to the markets and the benefits of going public
-How Aequitas plans to focus on trading platforms that will prohibit predatory trading practices and enforce them
-The roll of market makers and how they will play a vital role
-Listing parameters and ensuring that only those ventures that are truly prepared actually make it to the listing board
-A separate, private market place where smaller "junior" players can participate
