AIX Development


The Astana International Exchange (“AIX”), after successfully establishing itself as a world-class stock exchange, is ready to move forward and find new ways of developing its business further.

At the AIX, we have built up a high-tech trading platform from scratch that offers not only expertise in its field, but also a regulatory environment that is familiar to the foreign investment community. We have a community of almost 30 trading members, including brokers operating in Kazakhstan, as well as brokers from China, Russia and Europe.

The AIX has become the first exchange in the world which migrated its core trading infrastructure—the Nasdaq matching engine—onto Amazon Web Services (AWS). This transition enables AIX to enhance the performance of its trading services while delivering agility and scalability to its investor community. It also gives AIX flexibility to launch new products and services faster and more cost-efficiently for its securities market.

The Astana International Exchange has been included in the FTSE Frontier Index Series Ground Rules, meaning that the AIX infrastructure and liquidity pool will now contribute to Kazakhstan’s FTSE Frontier Index rating.

The AIX plans to focus on new opportunities, such as developing its retail investors’ base, the Mining Sector, the Regional Equity Market Segment (REMS) and other areas.
