Exempt Market Dealer Overview
Investing in the exempt market may carry a higher level of risk than traditional investments and may have less liquidity; however, the exempt market offers the potential for higher returns and can be a valuable addition to a well-diversified investment portfolio. By working with a reputable EMD and conducting thorough due diligence, investors can access unique investment opportunities.
The exempt market offers several advantages to both issuers and investors. Issuers can access funding to grow their businesses or funds without preparing a prospectus and going through a different regulatory process. For investors, the exempt market offers alternative investment opportunities that may not be available in the public markets, such as early-stage development ventures, real estate projects, or private equity offerings. The exempt market also allows investors to diversify their portfolios further, spreading risk across various asset classes and sectors.
EMDs have several responsibilities, including evaluating and conducting due diligence on exempt market securities to ensure they meet regulatory requirements and are suitable for their clients, providing advice to investors about the risks, benefits, and suitability of investing in exempt market securities, facilitating trades in exempt market investments, maintaining proper records of all transactions and client communications, and educating investors about the exempt market, its unique characteristics, and the opportunities available to them.
Investing in the exempt market can be a valuable opportunity for those willing to do their due diligence and carefully evaluate their investment options. EMDs play a vital role in ensuring compliance and providing guidance to investors in the exempt market.
