Nasdaq’s Jameel Johnson, Associate Vice President, Government Relations, appeared on TD Ameritrade’s “Morning Trade Live” on June 19. Johnson spoke with host Oliver Renick about Nasdaq’s initiative to revitalize the U.S. equities markets. They discussed the importance of a healthy IPO market for individual investors and a healthy economy, how eliminating unnecessary and duplicative reporting requirements can help encourage smaller companies to seek an IPO and improve access to the IPO market, and how increased transparency in trading for short selling will help discourage manipulative trading while helping companies and investors.
