Crowd Valley CEO,Markus Lampinen said, "the growth and globalization of the crowdfunding and private securitiesmarket is driving the need for more information so that investors can make informed decisions. Webelieve Zacks is well positioned to provide much needed information and transparency in thisemerging market, in large part because Zacks is an established and respected public and privatecompany research market leader, with an outstanding reputation among US financial industry actors.This is the type of credibility needed in the international securities crowdfunding space."He added "Crowd Valley is committed to working with exceptional companies and we look forward toworking with Zacks and continuing to expand and develop the services we offer to our customers andpartners."Expanding into international markets is something Zacks CF Research has planned to do from thebeginning, Mr. Orloff says.
