EQUITA confirms its leadership in Italy in the brokerage of equities, bonds, cash equity options and ETFs

Milan, January 25, 2024

EQUITA is proud to announce its rank among best brokers in Italy, #1 among independent players in all market segments. According to figures recently published in a report by AMF Italia (formerly ASSOSIM, the Italian association of financial market intermediaries) analyzing the Italian brokerage market in 2023, the EQUITA trading floor confirmed its domestic leadership also this year.

In 2023, the Global Markets division was one of the most active trading floors in Italy, reporting significant market shares in the brokerage of financial instruments on behalf of clients.

In the cash equity segment, EQUITA ranked #1 independent broker (#4 in the overall ranking) with more than €28 billion total volumes traded, representing a 7% market share on Euronext Milan and 11% on Euronext Growth Milan.

In the bond segment, instead, the fixed income desk brokered more than €20 billion (7% market shares of DomesticMOT total volumes, 4% of EuroMOT and 4% of Euronext Access Milan), ranking #1 independent broker (#4, #6 and #7 respectively in the overall rankings of the three markets mentioned above).

2023 was a very successful year also for cash equity options, where EQUITA ranked #1 in the overall ranking with a 17% market share, significantly higher than the 9% recorded in 2022.

Top positioning was confirmed in the brokerage of ETFs too, where the team ranked #1 independent broker (#5 in the overall ranking), with a 7% market share.

Vincenzo Abbagnano and Cristiano Rho, Co-Heads of Global Markets, commented: “The confirmation of EQUITA's leadership in Italy in the brokerage of financial instruments is the right acknowledgment for all our professionals, who have always been committed to offer their clients an increasing diversification of the offer and a tailor-made service, constantly improved by continuous investments in technology”.

Mr. Abbagnano and Mr. Rho added: “The report published by AMF Italia confirmed our leadership among independent brokers in Italy not only in equities and bonds. There are other areas of excellence like cash equity options where the team ranked #1 in 2023 and ETFs where EQUITA ranked #5. This increase in positioning is the result of the diversification strategy executed by our trading floor, year after year”.
