New Products Provide More Information for Investors

OTC Markets Group has a mission to create a marketplace that promotes better accessibility to information for our investment community. As part of our commitment, we continuously engage with our marketplace to understand how we can develop new tools and services that help investors make intelligent decisions. Recently, we released two exciting new tools to provide investors with easier access to detailed trade and quote information on the 10,000+ OTC securities that trade on our platform. Free, easy to use, and designed to encourage an information-rich marketplace, we are thrilled to offer these new tools:

OTC Toolkit – Launched in May, this feature allows all OTC companies to provide investors with real-time quotes on their corporate website. Learn more about OTC Toolkit here: www.otcmarkets.com/companies-advisors/otc-toolkit/free-quotes.
