The Private Placement Markets offer investors the opportunity to invest in assets that are uncorrelated to their stock market investments. Additionally, Investors have the unique ability to invest directly into privately-held companies with strong track records and benefit from their experience and growth. Although private placements lack liquidity, they make up for it in allowing investors to further diversify their investment portfolios and help them achieve potentially above average returns.

The Private Placement Markets, either through the Issuer direct or through a FINRA / SEC Broker Dealer engaged by the Issuer, offers investors the opportunity to participate in investments that are not offered to the general public and are either exclusively offered through the Private Placement Markets or through a limited number of FINRA / SEC Broker Dealers.

Private Placements Offer Better Diversification:
