Information for German and Austrian SME investments in a new dimension

SideCaps Insights brings together all the data from the small cap listed companies themselves on a multi-sided content platform and enables more informed and faster investment decisions. Together with classic fundamental and price data, SideCaps Insights is a unique depository of all relevant IR documents and issuer-funded research in one solution for the first time. Our Liquidity Boards provide an overview of liquidity signals from our trading pool “SideCaps Pool”, and private alerts help source and build block liquidity in illiquid small cap stocks.

Users can personalize the content and further target their research effort.

Social tools on SideCaps Insights enable high quality engagement between investors and issuers about the stocks in our small cap universe.


A new dimension in small cap block liquidity

SideCaps Pool is the innovative transaction platform for German small cap, block investments.

SideCaps Pool consolidates liquidity from the widest universe of market participants in a dark pool format with user-controlled pre-trade transparency, thereby increasing the probability of execution whilst controlling market impact; all with mid-price execution. Thanks to flexible order types and matching logic designed for block transactions, clients benefit from a high potential for improved block liquidity.

Trades are executed on Xetra/ Boerse Frankfurt, outside the order book, and cleared through Eurex Clearing CCP, ensuring the highest regulatory standards, the optimum counterparty risk management and the strongest settlement discipline in the market today, whilst SideCaps nets the margin calls from Eurex to remove the high costs of CCP settlement normal for small cap stocks.


Exceptional Performance

Listed SMEs write attractive success stories and offer above-average return potential.

There are good reasons for this:
The small cap market segment offers an extraordinarily wide variety of business models. It is often home to market-leading hidden champions with a high level of innovative strength. Their strong growth rates are the basis for excellent performance.

SideCaps has dedicated itself to the mission of making this potential more easily and favorably accessible to all block traders.
