Investors and Private Companies Raising Capital?


Business & Tech Editor Steve Loader interviews Shari Noonan, CEO & Founder and Lee Saba, CTO & Head of Market Structure from award-winning fintech company Rialto Markets on the growth of private equity crowdfunding and secondary trading for private companies.

Tuesday 12th April 2022 @ 1.00 PM (EST)

In the second of our series of interviews, leading business, tech, and investment editor Steve Loader exclusively interviews pioneering Fintech founders Shari Noonan, CEO and Lee Saba, CTO and Head of Market Structure from Rialto Markets, on the opportunities that are now transforming the private security secondary trading market and crowdfunding for high growth private companies.
 
The global crowdfunding exploded from $8.61 billion in 2020 to $113.52 billion last year – a 1,021% increase, according to Pitchbook data, while the private securities market was valued at $7 trillion in 2021 and forecast to grow to $30 trillion in 2030*.
 
Rialto Markets will answer questions on how the growth of Fintech solutions, such as the emergence of a regulated Alternative Trading System (ATS) for trading private securities in the secondary market, can help investors unlock the opportunity to exit an investment much earlier with greater flexibility, and potentially provide wider access to trading of shares in the private securities market.
 
There are 27 million private companies in the US alone, but less than 1% are currently traded on a secondary market. You will learn how this could change to open potential opportunities for investors so they can more quickly realize any value on exciting, high-growth private company investments.
 
There will also be a chance to hear about some of the exciting private companies that Rialto Markets are working with, both in capital raising and secondary trading, through its regulated Alternative Trading System (ATS).
