British Virgin Islands-based holding company Anemoi International (AMOI) fell 4.44% in its first morning’s trading on the London Stock Exchange. 

Its stock was down to 3.87p from its placing price of 4p at midday. 

The stock exchange listing sees Anemoi complete its reverse takeover of Swiss software-as-a-service (SaaS) company id4, which helps small- to medium-size financial institutions with compliance on anti-money laundering requirements and tax regulations.

Anemoi planned to raise £2.17m through the issuance of 54.3 million ordinary shares, with another 66.6 million shares issued to id4 shareholders.

Growth plans

Allied Market Research forecasts the regulatory technology or ‘RegTech’ market will increase from $5.46bn in 2019 to $28.33bn in 2027 and id4 hopes to capture a good share.

It plans to expand its sales and customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities, product development and marketing to raise its profile. 

Next steps

Last week, id4 co-founders Sebastien Lalande and Emmanuel Nay said in a stock exchange statement: “The proposed acquisition by Anemoi is a major milestone for id4, and we are grateful to investors for backing us. 

“We have spent the past four years building id4 into an innovative and disruptive player in the RegTech market and look forward to transforming id4 into a best-in-class company.

“The fundraising will enable id4 to build on the significant momentum achieved so far. There are many opportunities to capture more market share through increased sales of our core products to increasingly regulated and burdened financial institutions.”

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
