    Transacted on each organisation s own website Designed to meet the specific requirements of the organisation APX CEO Sean Kennedy commented We have launched the Individual Licensed Market in response to client requests and to provide a low cost solution to the problem of unregulated secondary or grey markets Many organisations don t want the rules or characteristics associated with an ASX listing but do want a fair and transparent market for their investors This group includes cooperatives companies with restricted articles or employee ownership rules or companies and trusts with low stock turnover and low price volatility Other broader users of such a market include issuers of debentures unit trusts and other fungible trading instruments where a market based price discovery mechanism provides greater liquidity and transparency than remaining unlisted These organisations can design the type of market which most suits its objectives This would usually be achieved in conjunction with its broker adviser and we envisage that each market would have its panel of brokers who would research and support the company Many smaller and mid cap organisations do not like short selling and its consequent market implications Individual Licensed Markets disallow short selling Addressing the problem there are hundreds of unregulated secondary markets frequently transacting in shares units managed investment schemes MIS fixed interest life policies and other investments Many of the practices in these unregulated markets are often questionable For example Issuers redeeming investments before maturity and charging substantial penalties which can effectively mean buying below market price Managers buying units for the Management Company or other trusts managed by them and with greater information than the selling investor creating the perception that transacting at NTA is fair and reasonable to the selling investor In addition some online sites are offering secondary markets in unlisted investments

    the exchange had been verified emission commodities from domestic abatement projects The offsets come from the internationally respected VER label attesting to the fact that they have been verified by German compliance and audit giant TUV SUD one of the best known and respected UNFCC Designated Operating Entities and operators of the Blue Registry Tim Hanlin managing director of ACX said the listing of the VER offsets on the exchange is another significant milestone for carbon trading in Australia and he was proud of the team that has worked tirelessly to ensure that once again ACX achieved this market first The product origination team has been working through the issues of listing and more importantly delivering verified abatement from non domestic projects since the newly elected Prime Minister announced Australia s intention to ratify Kyoto at the Bali COP MOP in December The fact that these VER credits were snapped up within 24 hours of listing is not only a vindication of our due diligence but also a signal that the Australian buyer has become more sophisticated Mr Hanlin said The VER offsets are sourced from a Russian gas pipeline upgrade project where the ageing infrastructure and market structure meant that without the value of the credits neither the gas supplier pipeline owner or retailer had any financial incentive to prevent the highly destructive methane 23 times the global warming potential of CO2 escaping through the joints valves and meters in the gas distribution network Rob Cawthorne managing director of the Carbon Reduction Institute CRI who bought the VER offsets on behalf of one of their clients said the project was not only environmentally and financially additional it also had the benefit of resource stewardship Access to overseas credits gives CRI the opportunity to offer our clients a wider portfolio
