Matched Bargain Service

The Matched Bargain Service (MBS) allows investors to trade unlisted shares off-market. MBS is a mechanism for the exchange of shares where buyers’ and sellers’ price expectations match, enabling shareholders to buy or sell shares in companies that are not currently listed on a regulated market.

We provide both an on and offline platform where you can register your interest and set your price expectations.

We currently offer an online Matched Bargain Service for the following companies: 

  • Aberdeen Football Club plc
  • Atlantic Carbon Group plc
  • Elephant Capital plc
  • Optare plc
  • Sheffield United plc
  • Waterloo Investment Holdings ltd

If you are already registered and hold shares for any of the companies above, you can access our
online platform at

We also offer an offline Matched Bargain Service for the following companies:

  • Arsenal Holdings plc
  • Gate Ventures plc
  • Ludorum plc
  • Mar City plc
  • Ruspetro plc
  • Tolent plc
  • Tottenham Hotspur Ltd.

Should you wish to trade shares in any of these companies, please contact our dedicated MBS team by emailing us at or by calling us on 020 3170 0234 (calls are charged at local rate and lines are open Monday to Friday 09:00 to 17:00).

Please note that as shares are not admitted to trading on a regulated market, there may be a significant delay before any transactions in these shares are completed, as there may not be sufficient demand or supply from buyers or sellers. This also means that it may be difficult to adequately assess the value of any investment in the shares. If you have any doubts about whether to act, you should seek advice from an appropriately qualified financial advisor. Capita Asset Services is unable to provide investment advice. Please remember that the value of shares may fall as well as rise and you may not recover your original investment.
