  • Issuers: Enhanced visibility and investor exposure, flexibility for raising capital and shareholder diversification.
  • Brokers: Competitive, flexible pricing and convenient settlement.
  • Investors: Quotes and dividend payments in U.S. dollars, familiar trade, clearance and settlement procedures and portfolio diversification.
