Our History

JP Jenkins Limited is the oldest trading platform for private companies and traces its roots back to the Unlisted Securities Market, which was part of the London Stock Exchange.

  • Unlisted Securities Market

    The Unlisted Securities Market (“USM”), was established by the London Stock Exchange in 1980 as a market for companies too small to qualify for a full listing and ran until 1996.

  • JP Jenkins Set Up

    In the early 1990’s, the late John Jenkins and Paul Brown, a fellow stock jobber, set up JP Jenkins as an alternative platform for unlisted companies that did not wish or could not afford to list on the USM.

  • Ofex Market Formed

    After the London Stock Exchange set up the Alternative Investment Market (“AIM”) in June 1995 to replace the USM, John and Paul saw an opportunity and formed the Ofex Market (“Ofex”) to offer a lighter touch alternative to AIM. Ofex was later acquired by new owners (and is now known as the NEX Exchange Growth Market), after which JP Jenkins was re-launched as a platform for unlisted securities.

  • Mr Jenkins Awarded OBE

    Mr Jenkins (decd.) was awarded an OBE in March 2006 for his contribution to financial services.

  • JP Jenkins was acquired by Peterhouse Corporate Finance Ltd in April 2013
