September 27, 2019 | Written By Joseph Bonvouloir

We appreciate this opportunity to comment on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“Commission”) Concept Release on Harmonization of Securities Offering Exemptions (the “Release”).

The Democratization of Private Equity is Here

August 26, 2019 | By Ron Diamond

Nine months ago, a young entrepreneur named Joseph Bonvouloir traded a lucrative investment banking career to pursue a concept he is passionate about—a growing trend and need that he brought to my attention and I simply could not ignore. Private markets are blowing up, both in terms of quantity of companies, and in market caps of those that are either remaining private or going from public to private. This trend is unlike anything we have ever seen before.
