FinovateSpring 2009 / SecondMarket

Presenter Profile:

How they describe themselves: Founded in 2004, New York-based SecondMarket, Inc. (Member FINRA | MSRB | SIPC) is the largest centralized marketplace for illiquid assets, such as auction-rate securities, bankruptcy claims, collateralized debt obligations, limited partnership interests, mortgage-backed securities, private company stock, restricted securities in public companies and whole loans. SecondMarket’s online trading platform has 3,000 participants, including global financial institutions, hedge funds, private equity firms, mutual funds, corporations, and other institutional and accredited investors that collectively manage over $1 trillion in assets available for investment.

What they think makes them better: SecondMarket is the first vertically integrated platform for the trading of illiquid assets – where buyers, sellers and information regarding a variety of illiquid securities are aggregated and organized into a centralized system where participants can leverage actionable data to make informed investment decisions on otherwise untradeable assets.
