NextWave Markets was founded with the mission of democratizing access to alternative investments through the use of secondaries.  Traditional barriers to accessing this asset class include high lnvestment minimums, long holding periods, illiquidity, the J-curve dynamic as well as blind pool risk.  Through the combination of alternative secondaries and our proprietary platform we eliminate these barriers and unfavorable characteristics and are able to deliver a more user-friendly version of alts for institutional and non-institutional investors alike.
