The trading window for securities issued on the Seedrs platform is currently open, with 690 different securities potentially available for trading. The monthly trading opportunity is open for the next six days.
While starting slowly, the secondary market has continued to inch higher, providing investors an alternative path to liquidity. Private securities are typically illiquid, needing a public offering or a merger or acquisition event for investors to cash in (or take a loss). Seedrs Secondary Marketplace is one of few platforms that has successfully engineered an option to sell private shares to other investors.
A quick review of indicative valuations, the estimated value of companies that have raised growth capital on Seedrs shows that Fintechs have done pretty well. At the top of the list is Revolut, the global digital bank (neobank in some markets) that displays a percentage change of 5022.5% since it first raised capital in Seedrs.
Others in the top ten list of Fintechs include:
- Landbay – 3340%
- iBAN Wallet – 851%
- WeGift – 788%
- Plum – 588.3%
- Creditspring – 475.5%
- Young Platform – 404.9%
- Wombat Invest – 363.7%
- Pelican – 260%
- Cushon – 215.2% (acquired)
Note that not all of the above firms currently have shares available for purchase.
Of course, not all securities show a valuation gain since their primary issuance and past performance is no guarantee of future success. It is still interesting to view progress for the private securities issued in the UK – and open to all investors.
