The Stock Exchange is an institution, organization, or association which hosts a market where stocks, bonds, and commodities are traded. Buyers and sellers come together to trade during specific hours of given business days in which the exchanges impose rules and regulations on the firms and brokers that are involved in the transactions; any company that is traded on an exchange is referred to as “listed”.
Securities that are not listed on a stock exchange are sold Over-The-Counter (OTC). Companies that have shares traded OTC are usually smaller and riskier because they do not meet the requirements to be listed on a stock exchange. It is that advisable that companies secure the requirements to be listed in the stock exchange thus increasing their value. When a business raises capital by issuing shares, the owners of those new shares are likely going to want to sell their stake someday, hence being listed improves the chances of attracting the right kind of investors.
