What are Private Placements?

A private placement is an offering of unregistered securities to a limited pool of investors, which is frequently illiquid and valued only periodically.

With this, investors are able to buy shares to a closed group of investors rather than through the open market.

In a private placement, a company sells shares of private placement stock or funds in the company in exchange for cash. This type of investment allows investors to purchase shares of entities, like hedge funds, oil and gas funds, and private stock that isn’t publicly traded or registered with the SEC.

Navigation Tip:

Do your due diligence before investing in private placements as some are not regulated by the SEC. A financial professional can help with your review.
