What is the Role of a Sponsor?

An OTCQX Sponsor for banks is a pre-approved FINRA member broker-dealer firm that specializes in trading and advising banks. OTCQX Sponsors provide guidance on the trading of a bank’s stock, as well as help facilitate relationships with institutional investors, investment bankers and other key market participants. Each bank is required to submit a letter of introduction from an OTCQX Sponsor before joining OTCQX. View a list of OTCQX Sponsors .
