Equities Overview

Exotix’s global presence and local offices provide access to frontier and emerging equities markets around the world. No exclusive tie-ups with any local broker and a 40% internal crossing ratio allow us to limit the price impact from even large trades and reduce execution costs in illiquid markets.

Our range of trading clients cross all sectors: asset managers, banks, brokers, family offices, corporations, export credit agencies, sovereign wealth funds – among many others.
