Many companies that you as a broker dealer or introducing professional have cannot list on the National Stock Exchanges or regional markets within your company as they are too small to “qualify” on the locally regulated markets.

Within the AfricanX trading system Brokers and Introducers can submit new investors to the system, linked to their account, submit companies for listing, and or make direct investments as a broker dealer into Companies. There is no limit on the amount of capital a Broker Dealer or Introducer can make as an investment into the system as institutional investors.
