No, only accredited investors can buy private placements. To determine your eligibility you must register with Algodon Group. For an individual to be an accredited investor that person must meet certain SEC requirements.
Until now, the private placement and initial public offering (IPO) markets have predominantly been offered to large institutions and their preferred customers. It is impossible in today's economy to keep excluding the individual investor--there is both far too great a demand for private equity offerings and far too much information available to limit this type of investment opportunity to institutions. Algodon Partners is helping to create a new marketplace to bridge this need.
We understand the importance of liquidity when making an investment decision. Therefore, Algodon Partners carefully reviews each company to make sure that they have a discernible exit strategy and each transaction is structured with the anticipation of an exit event within three years of the transaction closing, either through an initial public offering, merger, or acquisition.
A venture capital (VC) firm raises money from external sources and then re-invests these funds in various investment opportunities. At Algodon Partners, each member can make his/her own independent investment decision by choosing from our selection of quality private placement opportunities. In addition, VC firms often focus on one industry or market segment where as Algodon Partners shall be open to qualified candidates in many industries and market segments.
Our ability to provide private placement opportunities to our investors, along with traditional internet brokerage services, enables Algodon Partners to stand out from the competition, both on and off the Internet. We pledge to adhere to our goals: to provide unique quality investment opportunities, to offer outstanding personal service, and to offer value added, up-to-the-moment information to our investors.
