Background information
If you are interested in ayondo, you will be presented with a great deal of different information on the Internet, from which - especially with regard to the recent history of the company - it is rarely possible to form a realistic picture. On this page we try to present neutrally what can only be compiled or reconstructed in fragments from the various digital sources.

"If you want to read the future, you have to leaf through the past" a saying which could not describe our vision in a better way. With experienced management, many new ideas and cooperation partners who share our values, we will shape the future. Because: The fact that ayondo as a trademark stands like no other for the spirit of social trading is undisputed. It is a successful business model that has proven resilience even in difficult times.


On this page we would like to disclose once again which cooperation partners have provided services for ayondo in the past. This information is important for registered ayondo users for the reason that in the course of using both social trading and regular, individual trading, business relationships were entered into with different companies. The contractual regulations that determine the scope of the service relationship are directly related to the respective customer relationship. The service that is contractually owed is defined, as well as all other aspects that are initiated between the user and provider within a set of rules through the conclusion of a contract.

Due to the one-brand strategy driven primarily by an external investor group until 2019, it was difficult for outsiders to determine which legal entity within the holding structure was responsible for which part of the service chain. Since we frequently received enquiries in the past, we would like to outline here once again who was responsible for which process or - if the customer relationship were still active - who is responsible.

Primarily due to the BREXIT and the associated regulatory consequences, it was no longer possible for ayondo portfolio management GmbH to transmit signals for implementation to the business partner for execution. The background to this was the fact that following the occurrence of the BREXIT event, the United Kingdom left the European Union and the provision of cross-border financial services originally permitted under EU passporting no longer complied with the previous supervisory regulations. For this reason, the management of AYPM has decided to put the operational business on hold until a new service provider can be found.

Im Zuge der Übernahme der ayondo markets Ltd. erfolgte ein Rebranding. Das Unternehmen firmiert heute unter der Bezeichnung BUX Markets Limited ("BUX"). Zwischen BUX und ayondo besteht keine Beziehung. Es handelt sich um jeweils separate Marken bzw. juristische Personen.

In the course of the acquisition of ayondo markets Ltd. a rebranding took place. The company now trades under the name BUX Markets Limited ("BUX"). There is no relationship between BUX and ayondo. They are each separate brands or legal entities.

In 2018, ayondo markets Ltd. ran into economic difficulties, which were cushioned by a takeover of the ailing British financial services provider by the Dutch-based BUX Holding. Due to the lack of an EU licence and different strategic interests, a continuation of the cooperation between the social trading provider and the financial service provider was no longer possible. After an intensive search for suitable partners to shape a joint future, ayondo entered into a partnership with the ActivTrades Group and plans to gradually resume the original scope of services in this constellation.

All IP, technology and brand rights are now held by RSQ Technology Ventures GmbH. These were secured in a joint asset and share deal, with the aim of returning the established brand to the radiance it originally held after an extensive housekeeping process.
