OTC Markets sponsor

Advokatfirmaet Raeder, has broad expertise and experience in capital markets and securities law and is approved as the first Norwegian law firm to serve as an OTC Markets Sponsor. Advokatfirmaet Raeder assists clients who wish to cross-trade in the United States on the OTCQX and OTCQB stock markets.

Publicly traded companies in the Nordic region can cross-trade on the OTCQX and OTCQB stock markets, utilizing their existing local filings and disclosures. Issuers can trade OTC Markets either through a Foreign Ordinary Share (F Share) or an American Depository Receipt (ADR), either Unsponsored or Sponsored. Trading on OTCQX and OTCQB is a proven way for companies to grow their US shareholder base, increase local marker liquidity, and achieve fair valuation without the cost and complexity of a traditional US exchange listing.
