About

Secondary Capital (SC) was established by veteran Private Markets investors, active in both primary and secondary transactions since the early 2000's.

SC is aligned to a fundamental shift that companies are staying private longer and need transitional capital to provide liquidity to early investors, founders and executives.  SC, as a direct secondary specialist, provides liquidity to shareholders (founders, executives, VC funds and other early investors) of late-stage and growth companies.

With our direct and pro-active Deal Engine, we constantly screen the best PE and VC funds and thus closely monitor thousands of companies backed by top-tier investors. Out of these companies, very few meet our selective investment criteria. 

 

By combining our highly selective approach and dynamic execution, we give investors access to exclusive and proprietary investment opportunities into best performing late-stage tech and growth companies. Our deals have the following characteristics:

  • Backed by the best Private Equity funds​

  • High growth profile

  • Liquidity window of 1-3 years 

 

Liquidity

Founders & Executives 

Investors

​We understand the deep personal sacrifices associated with being an entrepreneur. We believe that entrepreneurs should have the opportunity to transform some of their paper wealth into cash before an exit.​

Providing liquidity solutions for stock option plans contributes to retaining and attracting the best talents by accelerating employees benefit schemes. ​We provide liquidity to founders and executives to realize a portion of their wealth, buy out former employees, or clean the cap table.​

​​

Companies take on average 10-12 years to get to an IPO or M&A. This journey is too long for most investors. Plus, angel investors and seed funds often meet their return goals well before the final exit. ​​

We provide liquidity to early investors in order to monetize and de-risk high performing and late-stage investments, accelerate distribution path to LPs, recycle cash into promising early-stage companies with superior upside, or address end of fund life constraints.​​

 

How we work

Management friendly

We execute deals in partnership with top management teams. It is very important that our investments are management and board friendly.

Efficient process 

Our process is lean and fast. We usually complete deals in 6-8 weeks.

Flexible & fast

We are not linked to financing rounds. We can come in at any point of time - before or after a round.

Check size

Our typical investment size is between $5M-$15M. Thus, we only take minority positions.

 

We do not disclose our investments publicly 

Confidentiality is a top priority for Secondary Capital and our investors.

We complete around 10 investments per year.
