The NEO Trusted Service Provider Program
What is the NEO Trusted Service Provider Program?
Aequitas NEO Exchange is pleased to join with service providers and advisors who are committed to focusing on the needs of NEO listed companies in order to champion public company success.
NEO Trusted Service Providers are recognized by Canadian capital markets participants as leading experts in corporate finance, cross-border listings, marketing, investor and issuer services.
How does Aequitas NEO Exchange identify potential NEO Trusted Service Providers?

- approach to client service;
- initiatives that demonstrate the applicant's commitment to innovation and the Canadian capital markets over the preceding three years;
- third party testimonials; and
