MORE ABOUT SMALLCAPS
Smallcap stocks are different from nanocap and microcap stocks because they tend to trade on markets with higher market listing requirements such as a minimum amount of net assets or a minimum number of stockholders
Smallcap stocks trade on most exchanges with their prices quoted on the OTCBB, OTC Link LLC, or the Pink Sheets. The larger, more established smallcaps are listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market, American Stock Exchange (AMEX), New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Executives, Officers, Directors, and Administrators of microcap companies have significant management liability exposures. Failure to establish cooperate governance standards and a comprehensive risk management/management liability program exposes the personal assets of Executives, Officers, Directors, and Administrators.
Smallcap companies are public to raise capital, to develop products or distribution. Public companies have more sophisticated risk management requirements however it is cost prohibitive for companies of this size to hire in-house risk managers
