The trading of Banks and Investment Holdings shares is characterized by a weekly auction market model whose main function is to provide an investment and disinvestment channel that improves their transparency and liquidity.
The benefits of our model are:
- full transparency of the pricing model;
- full equal treatment of investors with the same investment or disinvestment objective;
- negotiations conducted in orderly manner also thanks to a price creation mechanism suitable to make the price trend predictable over time;
- multiple solutions that Issuers can adopt to improve the liquidity of their shares (adoption of repurchase programs, assignment to liquidity providers, extraordinary buy-back transactions).
Investment Holding Companies
Even for Investment Holding companies the listing allows to achieve the same benefits enjoyed for listed banks, so it represents a viable alternative, at competitive costs, compared to other existing markets. In relation to this type of issuer, the main advantage appears to be the guarantee of orderly trading, thanks to a price formation mechanism that limits the impact of spot and not significant transactions.
About twenty shares of banks are currently traded on the Segment.
