The file also provides comprehensive active and historical stock promotion data for small cap listed securities.
“OTC Markets Group recognizes its compliance leadership role for the public small cap markets,” said Matthew Fuchs, Executive Vice President of Market Data and Strategy at OTC Markets Group. “We are extending our compliance coverage in order to help AML and risk management teams holistically cover the US small cap market, which will benefit investors, market participants and small-cap issuers.”

Delivered in pipe-delimited format, twice daily at 5:00 am (ET) and 7:00 pm (ET), the file is licensed at an enterprise level designed for broker-dealers, AML, compliance and risk management professionals looking to more effectively right-size small cap listed equity compliance.
