Crowdcube launches European shares marketplace

Crowdcube has launched Cubex, a secondary European marketplace for shares in private companies.

Retail investors will be able to use the marketplace to buy and sell shares in high-growth private European companies.

“Gone are the days when a successful exit for businesses and investors meant only a blockbuster IPO or acquisition,” said Darren Westlake, chief executive and co-founder of Crowdcube. “As companies stay private for longer, and grow faster and become more valuable than ever before, this is a real boon for retail investors: a European marketplace to buy and sell equity in early-stage category-definers.”

Since 2017, Crowdcube has delivered over £16 million in liquidity through secondary shares.
