Reserve Your Ticker Symbol

Choosing your ticker symbol is an initial step in the life of a public company. An issuer’s symbol is unique and can reinforce branding initiatives.

NYSE, NYSE American and NYSE Arca use up to four-character symbols. The SEC’s uniform system for the selection and reservation of securities trading symbols gives issuers on all participant exchanges the right to retain their symbols should they transfer to a new exchange.

To secure your symbol, contact us at the link below.
