Rethinking wealth generation

We are industry insiders that were not happy with the exclusiveness that private markets exhibited, with our mission to help individual investors access these funds and benefit from the same long term wealth generation that institutional investors get

Our Story

“Wealth creation for our generation is not the same as it was for our parents, who were able to take advantage of low-risk high interest savings accounts with their banks. For us, investing via the stock and crypto markets feels more like speculation, so opening up the private markets, with its inherent low volatility through lack of trading, is essential to creating the patient long term form of saving that previous generations benefited from.”
