    Exploit the Fungibility of Private Fund Yield Derivatives

    Trade the Forward Curve.


    Cutting through illiquidity.

    XTAL has built the first private market fund and index derivatives exchange. By trading on PRIFFE, investors can access unprecedented liquidity, portfolio and risk management possibilities.

    PRIFFE instruments give investors the possibility to actively adjust their private market allocations, in a symmetric or asymmetric way. By leveraging very efficient overlay transactions with the objective of managing risk or locking in returns, investors can respond to the challenges of the macro-economic conditions, without altering the composition of the direct portfolio.

    Reiventing institutional investment, liquidity and democratization.

    Currently, trading private funds implies that two parties agree on the spot value of a NAV (typically referred to a prior quarter-end than the transaction date) adjusted to current market terms, with or without a discount deriving from negotiation, plus the residual obligations on the traded commitment. All this process currently happens in absence of a generalized pricing framework that should otherwise be available to both parties in order to define equitable trading terms. In addition, there is no possibility to utilize term contracts, that could offer better risk management possibilities, because there is no way to set a NAV to be exchanged in the future.

    Yield derivatives are unique in their ability to split equity and credit risk over a given time horizon, which can be customized. Unlocking a seamless, standardized exchange of private funds’ credit and equity risk, multiplies trading incentives, attracts a broader group of investors (arbitrageurs, hedgers, traders, etc.) and leads to a bigger pool of available liquidity.
