In last week’s article, we focussed on the registration process for securities prior to distribution in the Trinidad and Tobago securities market. The process involves the registration of the entity issuing the security as a Reporting Issuer and the registration of the securities. While registering securities, there are different firms and service providers that can play integral roles in facilitating the issuance and distribution of securities via Public Offerings. These include: attorneys and legal advisers, accountants and auditors, valuators, broker-dealers, underwriters, bankers, stock exchanges and securities depositories. These service providers are normally involved in facilitating the distribution of securities. In this week’s article, we discuss the roles of these entities in bringing an issue of securities (equities or bonds) to the market.
