Upstream and Equity Stock Transfer Release Next Generation Transfer agent API to Facilitate Automated Share Transfers Between Exchanges

Monday, 13 November 2023 10:00 AM

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November 13, 2023 / Equity Stock Transfer, LLC ("EST"), an SEC-registered stock transfer agent based in New York City today 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.

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.

Mohit Bhansali, co-founder, and CEO of Equity Stock Transfer, noted, "This is a tremendous accomplishment. We can now provide a valuable benefit to issuers who lack secondary trading liquidity by offering their valued shareholders a frictionless experience in depositing their shares from record ownership at EST directly onto Upstream for secondary trading."

"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," says Upstream co-creator Brian Collins. "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."
