"We are pleased Deutsche Bank is showcasing OTCQX companies in its November 19 ADR Virtual Investor Conference," said Jason Paltrowitz, Managing Director and Global Head of Business Development for OTC Markets Group. "OTCQX ADRs are among the most shareholder-friendly, highly-visible and actively-traded ADRs in the U.S. market and offer a tremendous opportunity for U.S. retail and institutional investors and analysts interested in non-U.S. companies."
"Our virtual investor conference provides a unique platform to connect non-U.S. companies with a wide range of U.S. investors – both institutional and retail – simply, cost-effectively and often without leaving their desks," commented Zafar Aziz, head of DR Market Solutions at Deutsche Bank. "When combined with other more mainstream IR activities, our depositary receipt clients enjoy comprehensive marketing support to raise their market profile."
"ADRs offer U.S.-based investors remarkable portfolio opportunities. Unfortunately, many of these international issuers are unfamiliar on how to reach these potential shareholders," said John Viglotti, VP, Investor Relations Products and Services at PR Newswire & Vintage. "Deutsche Bank has demonstrated great leadership by creating its quarterly virtual investor conference series. Giving CEOs and their senior teams real-time, open interaction with U.S.-based investors is an important first step for building long relationships."
There is no fee for participants to log in, attend live presentations or ask questions at the event.
