European Wholesale Securities Market (EWSM)

The European Wholesale Securities Market (EWSM) is a new EU ‘regulated market’ for wholesale debt securities dedicated to the needs of arrangers and issuers of wholesale debt products.

EWSM delivers service excellence to international market participants – process efficiency, a price promise and a highly professional regulatory regime.

EWSM admits the following to listing:

  • Asset Back Securities
  • Debt Securities
