Private Equity Marketplace for Pre-IPO Giants
In February of 2021, InvestX launched its enhanced trading platform, InvestX GEM (Growth Equity Marketplace), which allows broker-dealers/advisors to easily transact in private equity through an intuitive and transparent solution.
The platform is a cloud-based solution that can be connected via a web-based login, or a FIX and ITCH protocol, which integrates directly with the back-end systems of broker-dealers – a key differentiator – which further facilitates the compliant, electronic trading of private securities and differentiating itself from competitors in the space.
GEM also eliminates the typical long holds of private investing and allows for block and single share trading. Through using Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs), all sells/buys on the marketplace are guaranteed, which solves typical complexities such as the issuer’s Right of First Refusal.
