Consider New Options.

XTAL unlocks new ways to access and trade the private markets to meet the requirements of the private market industry participants seeking better price transparency and liquidity terms, lighter capital solutions and more efficient risk management instruments – as they prepare for broader distribution to retail and DC plans and for increased institutional regulation.

The private markets have sporadic liquidity and no efficient way for investors to hedge or transfer risk. XTAL’s PRIFFE offers GPs, private market intermediaries and investors, an unprecedented set of solutions within an established capital markets framework to bridge this gap.

All investments involve risk, including the risk of loss of principal. You should carefully consider your investment objectives, risks, transaction costs and other expenses before deciding to invest in options, swaps or other investments. This is for information purposes only and does not constitute investment advice or an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security of any entity or for the services of XTAL Strategies.
