A Variety of Securities to Meet Your Capital Raising Needs

New York Stock Exchange (NYSE ) offers a range of listing choices for many types of securities and asset classes:

Companies that list on the NYSE or NYSE MKT, can leverage a wide range of advantages, including access to capital, improved branding and visibility, accountability, and increased liquidity. NYSE-listed securities benefit from the enhanced market quality of the high tech/high touch model.

  • Common Shares – ownership shares of a public company that can be purchased by any investor.
  • Preferred Shares – hybrid securities that possess features of equity and debt instruments.
  • American Depository Receipts – negotiable certificates that trade like a common stock and are issued by a U.S. bank. ADRs represent shares of non-U.S. publicly traded companies.
  • Rights & Warrants – subscription rights to shares of a future common stock offering.

Exchange Traded Products listed on NYSE ARCA are derivatively priced securities that can be traded throughout the day on NYSE Arca and NYSE MKT.

  • Exchange Traded Funds – combine the simplicity of stocks with the diversified risk of investment funds. ETFs allow investors to buy and sell shares that represent a fractional ownership interest in a portfolio of securities held by the ETF.
  • Exchange Traded Notes – senior unsecured debt obligation that is generally designed to track the total return of an underlying index or strategy. ETNs can offer investment exposure to market sectors and asset classes that may be difficult to achieve in a cost-effective way with other types of investments.
  • Exchange Traded Vehicles – provide investors exposure to underlying assets such as futures contracts, commodities, and currencies without actually trading futures or ever taking physical delivery of the underlying assets.

Corporate debt instruments whereby bondholders, as lenders, have creditor stake in a company.


A publicly traded investment that raises capital through an initial public offering, and then trades like a stock. Closed-end funds have a fixed number of shares that trade on the exchange.
