OTC Markets Group Introduces “Hot Sector” Information to its Compliance Analytics Product

NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — OTC Markets Group Inc. (OTCQX: OTCM), operator of financial markets for 10,000 U.S. and global securities, today announced the release of “Hot Sector” information (Cannabis, Cryptocurrency/Blockchain) to its award-winning OTC Compliance Analytics product. The additional sector categorization builds upon efforts to provide market professionals and investors with increased market transparency and disclosure.

The addition of Hot Sector information joins the earlier additions of Shell Risk and Promotion Data to the Compliance Analytics product from earlier in 2018. Details on the new information may be found in the user guide.

The Compliance Analytics product contains two files: a base file which contains over 100 compliance data points for every OTC security and an analytics file which contains an overall risk score for each OTC security.

“The availability of OTC Cannabis and Cryptocurrency/Blockchain securities data will help risk management teams make informed decisions relating to these emerging sectors,” said Matthew Fuchs, Executive Vice President of Market Data and Strategy at OTC Markets Group.

The OTC Markets Compliance Analytics product provides a comprehensive risk scoring methodology for all OTC equity securities. The methodology considers 19 risk factors including: Caveat Emptor status, Penny Stock status, name changes, price/volume changes, changes to shares outstanding and promotion data. All the risk factors are evaluated and scored individually with an aggregate risk score being created from the sum of the respective values.
