How It Works

The NPM Fund Auction Platform is designed to scale and support multiple fund structures, aligning with the evolution of product creations to open investor access.

  • Designed By Sponsors

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

  • Regulatory Framework

    Built on our deep regulatory experience in building markets, NPM operates as a Qualified Matching Service (QMS), as interpreted by the IRS in a Private Letter Ruling and as an alternative trading system (ATS) with granted limited exemptive relief by the SEC, allowing for increased limitations in liquidity.

  • Standardized Marketplace

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

  • Benefits Sellers

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

  • Attract Buyers

    By streamlining and centralizing seller interests, NPM allows secondary liquidity providers to actively place bids across multiple fund opportunities; thereby ensuring greater liquidity and market-driven institutional pricing.

  • Streamline Settlement

    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.
