OTC Markets Group Opens the Market at the CSE Media Centre

The CSE proudly welcomed OTC Markets Group to the CSE Media Centre to open the market on October 23rd, 2019. This Market Open took place just ahead of the inaugural CSE and OTC Markets event Cannabis Investor Day, taking place on October 30th.

OTC Markets Group Inc. operates three markets for 10,000 US and global securities. To create better informed and more efficient financial markets, OTC Markets Group organizes securities into these markets based on the quality and quantity of information companies disclose. The company provides services in three core areas: trading services, market data, and corporate services.

“This is fantastic for us. I think opening the market with the CSE, given the partnership we’ve had over the last five years, is just another one of those milestones that shows how great that partnership is. We’ve done so much together, whether it’s our trips around the world, or bringing companies from around the world to the Canadian markets and the US markets. This, I wouldn’t say is a capstone of those accomplishments, but just the start of what I think is going to be another great five years of helping small, early-stage companies,” said Jason Paltrowitz, Executive Vice President – Corporate Services at OTC Markets Group.

“With our partnership, we have a great event next week, our inaugural CSE OTC Markets cannabis conference. We are oversold, which is always nice, and we really look forward to continuing that, both in New York, here in Canada, and around the world.”
