InvestorNewsBreaks – Upstream, Equity Stock Transfer LLC Enter Strategic API Collaboration

Equity Stock Transfer (“EST”), an SEC-registered stock transfer agent based in New York City announced that it has deployed a fully operational Application Programming Interface (“API”) to automate the transfer of securities from its software systems to and from Upstream, a MERJ Exchange market. According to the announcement, EST and Upstream have created an integrated suite of technology solutions that deliver an automated in-app solution allowing public company shareholders to transfer their shares between an issuer’s primary listing exchange and Upstream.

“With a tap of a button, shareholders of Upstream issuers that have EST as their transfer agent may now transfer shares via EST to the Upstream secondary market for improved liquidity, price discovery and instant trade-settlement,” Upstream co-creator Brian Collins said of the move. “This API collaboration with EST also allows non-U.S. shareholders to deposit shares for trading, where they may otherwise have struggled to deposit shares with U.S. brokers, as many brokers do not accept, deposit, clear or trade low-priced stocks, or stocks held by non-U.S. shareholders.”
