Millennium Trust and EquityZen to Co-host Webinar: “How Private Investors Can Invest in Pre-IPO Companies”

October 12, 2016

Oak Brook, Illinois – October 12, 2016 – Millennium Trust Company and EquityZen are co-hosting an educational webinar on Tuesday, October 18 at 3:00 p.m. CT / 4:00 p.m. ET on how private investors can research and review investment opportunities in pre-IPO companies. While certain alternative assets, such as those in private secondary markets, were previously only available for institutional investors, technology has helped to democratize the process and opened access for a wide range of advisors and their high-net-worth clients.

Millennium Trust Company’s Director of Alternative Custody Services, Meg Zwick, and Kaylock Yam, Distribution Lead at EquityZen, will co-host the webinar.

“We are excited to work with EquityZen to provide education and access to pre-IPO technology company investments to private investors and advisors’ clients, that have typically been reserved for institutions,” said Meg Zwick, Director of Alternative Custody Services at Millennium Trust. “This webinar will help educate advisors and private investors on how they can participate in the secondary market.”
