How it Works

Learn about the key features of the Nasdaq Fund Secondaries platform


    Fund managers control the parameters by which their funds are auctioned on our proprietary platform.


    Built on Nasdaq’s deep regulatory experience in building markets, Nasdaq Fund Secondaries can facilitate a variety of secondary transactions. The platform may operate as a qualified matching service (“QMS”), as interpreted in a Private Letter Ruling by the IRS. Intermediary services, including paying agent capabilities, are provided through its SEC- and FINRA- registered broker-dealer. Certain closed end investment companies may rely on limited exemptive relief granted by the SEC to Nasdaq affiliates to conduct periodic auctions.


    Our platform provides technology standardizations that can drive efficiency, natural competition and price discovery across multiple fund interests in a centralized marketplace.


    Integrations with distributors and administrators allow for financial advisors and investors to participate as sellers, rebalance portfolios, and actively manage illiquid fund interests.


    By streamlining and centralizing seller interests, the NFS platform can enable secondary liquidity providers to actively place bids across multiple fund opportunities; thereby increasing potential for greater liquidity and market-driven institutional pricing.


    Our transaction platform manages the full process, including execution of transfer agreements, adjustments to payments and settlement across multiple participants through a unified payment process.
