Why NYSE American


Why NYSE American

Drawing on its heritage as the American Stock Exchange, and most recently known as NYSE American, NYSE American is the NYSE market designed to meet the needs of small to mid-cap companies.

NYSE American is designed to help small to mid-cap companies grow by leveraging the NYSE’s brand visibility platform, providing a comprehensive IR package and offering a distinct execution venue that aims to maximize liquidity.

NYSE American combines the best elements of an electronic marketplace with traditional NYSE strengths. Each NYSE American listed company benefits from an e-Designated Market Maker (e-DMM) assigned to its company. The e-DMM must meet rigorous quoting obligations that encourage fair and orderly markets. Working together with NYSE’s Market Access Center (MAC desk), the e-DMM can leverage market insights including trading conditions, macroeconomic news and industry specific intelligence to inform their decisions.

  • Access to the industry’s first small-cap package of services including complimentary webhosting, press releases, webcasting and more
  • Market intelligence from the NYSE Market Access Center (MAC desk) and the NYSE Connect market data platform
  • NYSE’s ongoing regulatory advocacy on behalf of listed companies
  • An unparalleled visibility and exposure platform
  • A network of the world’s leading companies
