The trading arena of the OTC

The OTC trading arena was established about ten years ago based on the lessons learned from the AIM exchange in London, which developed a cheaper and simpler route that became popular among start-up companies and small and medium-sized technology companies. The company manages three central trading arenas: OTCQX, which has the highest requirements and large entities can also be found there; The OTCQB arena, which is mainly intended for small and medium-sized technology companies, and the Pink markets arena - which has the fewest threshold requirements.

Currently, about 1,270 companies are traded on OTCQX and OTCQB. including large global companies such as Adidas, Heineken and Roche, several established American banks and small growing companies from the US and the world. The value of the securities traded in these two trading arenas is approximately $6.7 billion per month. In the three OTC arenas, approximately 70 companies are also listed Israeli companies, including: Bank Hapoalim, Discount Bank, Bezeq, Delta-Galil, Elbit Imaging Systems, Jacada, Delek, and more.
