Private Securities Investment Platform Linqto Updates on Growth

Linqto, a private securities investment platform, says it has now topped 50,000 members.

Linqto is not a funding portal nor a broker-dealer but offers services in partnership with Rainmaker Securities – a FINRA-regulated broker-dealer. Linqto claims to be a private securities market that makes investing easy.

Many people believe that public markets are more of an exit opportunity than an entry point. Today, many wealthier investors and institutions look to invest in promising early-stage firms before they go public. Linqto seeks to provide access to this marketplace for accredited investors with minimums of $10,000.

In a public statement,  Linqto said its recent growth has been driven by demand from smaller, accredited investors looking to diversify from traditional portfolios. Linqto believes that in a highly volatile public marketplace, and a challenging crypto market, investors may benefit from private equity. Linqto points to Hamilton Lane’s recent Private Markets report that states that private equity continues to outperform public equity, generating an extra 83 cents per dollar invested since 2017, and will likely attract more institutional and high-net-worth individual investors in 2022.

Susan Miller, Chief Growth Officer at Linqto, said that private markets have historically delivered better returns but the average investor is shut out from these investments:

“Linqto’s incredible membership growth is a clear signal that average Main Street investors are interested in private markets, in particular digital asset technology companies.”

Linqto’s private investment portfolio includes many many well known names including: Ripple Labs, Uphold, BitPay, Dapper Labs, WHOOP, and Kraken. Linqto says that its members have seen a strong return on investment to date, with several exits including Coinbase, Robinhood, SoFi, Marqeta, and NerdWallet.
