Home market OTC QB/OTC BB
OTC-QB and OTC-BB are US-American off-exchange trading platforms. The companies listed there are not subject to the regulations of an American exchange but have to fulfil disclosure obligations towards the American exchange supervisory body SEC. Both markets are therefore accepted as “recognized markets” for secondary listings.
Despite the transparency obligations on the home market it cannot be prevented in all cases that disreputable market participants try to influence trade in fraudulent ways. Regarding OTC-QB and OTC-BB Börse Berlin has made the experience that such influencing may not only take place at Börse Berlin alone, but also simultaneously at the American trading venue.
An investment in these companies is only suitable for investors that understand the risks and are also able to carry them.
