The Trade Desk offers a self-service platform that allows media planners and buyers to easily define and manage digital advertising campaigns with as many targeting parameters as they choose – even if they result in quadrillions of permutations, creating unparalleled “expressiveness.” This highly nuanced approach provides clients a unique ability to bid accurately on each impression and target audiences with a high level of precision across devices and media, including display, video, audio, native and social. Integrations with major data, inventory, and publisher partners ensure maximum reach and decisioning capabilities, and enterprise APIs enable custom development on top of the platform. Together, these capabilities enable a higher return on every advertising dollar spent.

“Marketers rely on their agency partners to stay ahead of the rapidly-shifting digital media space, and we are excited to be the platform they turn to in order to drive return on media spend,” said Jeff Green, CEO and Founder of The Trade Desk. “Similar to how the equities and commodities markets have transitioned from paper transactions on trading floors to electronic trading, advertising is transitioning from manual to programmatic. We could not think of a more suitable partner than Nasdaq, who pioneered the electronic trading that has transformed the entire capital market landscape.”

“Technology is at the heart of our brand and The Trade Desk’s listing today is another affirmation of our long-term commitment in supporting innovators and visionaries,” said Nelson Griggs, Executive Vice President, Listing Services, Nasdaq. “We congratulate The Trade Desk’s employees, investors and customers and look forward to their continued success in reshaping the future of advertising.”
