What Is a Quoted Company?

A quoted company is one that is publicly traded and listed on the stock exchange, according to London South East, an investment company in the United Kingdom. The term refers to the quote or price of a public stock.

The term usually refers to public companies that are on the London Stock Exchange. While the term "quoted company" is common in the United Kingdom, it is not regularly used in the United States. The similar term for companies that are traded on the American stock exchanges is "listed," meaning that the stocks of those businesses are on a list for public sale.
