These changes began in the fall of 2013. On September 23rd, an 80-year-old US securities law was finally lifted, with the creation of Title II of the JOBS Act. For the first time, Title II allows private companies (known as “private equity”) to raise capital over the internet.
But these regulatory changes aren’t just happening in the U.S. They are also happening in Canada and more than 20 additional countries globally, creating a massive disruption in the way capital is invested by retail investors.
The goal is to democratize private equity investing - to give every investor educational resources and facilitate access to highly vetted, top quality private companies at significantly lower minimums.
Retail investors can visit the InvestX website to gain knowledge on private equity and then access private equity investment opportunities through the registered dealer website, Waverley.
