EquiDeFi seeks to DeMystify, DeMocratize and DeCentralize the world of private placement financings rather than DeMoralize it!
Finance and investing have seen an explosion of tech – from Robinhood to Coinbase. Yet the one-half trillion-dollar private placement market has failed to keep up with the times. Many investors remain locked out of this segment, and when they can, are frustrated by existing practices which deprive both investors and companies of opportunities to profit. Private placement investing lies outside the reach of many investors. Companies rely on arcane processes that lack uniformity or standards. Legal, regulatory and audit risk is present when records are incomplete, incorrect or inaccessible.
The savviest investors are mystified by the maze of compliance requirements. Depositing shares in their own brokerage accounts is a paper chase through emails and scans, and transactions are viewed with suspicion. Each issuer and broker use its own style of documentation. Combine this with inexperienced personnel and weeks or months of delay follows. Crucial SEC rules policing private securities transactions are jeopardized. Various gatekeepers seeking to prevent violations impose their own requirements familiar only to lawyers. But when verified records are centrally located in the EquiDeFi Vault, deposit to brokerage accounts and aftermarket trading is only a few clicks away.
We demystify private investing with state-of-the-art patent-pending software which provides secure record retention powered by DocuSign and our optional escrow payment portal powered by Stripe. We added AML/KYC checks and Accredited Investor certifications for times when added screening is desired protecting deals from securities law violations and risks of transacting with banned persons under Treasury regulations such as under the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC).
EquiDeFi levels the playing field for private investing and opens the way for broader participation by new investors. Our processes have been battle-tested and were developed by decades of lawyer, banker, broker-dealer and transfer agent experience designed to smooth the way to success.
Although EquiDeFi is a central knowledge repository of trust, we return the power to the investors, removing roadblocks and costs of participation in private placements. An investor controls their own document vault, receives verifiable proofs of their records, and no longer needs to make embarrassing and costly calls to company executives and counsel to assemble their records. Our SEC registered transfer agent partner keeps official records of ownership and processes transfer instructions in accordance with SEC and FINRA rules and regulations.
EquiDeFi will become an oracle of investment education and intends to offer tools to investors who wish to participate in the emerging field of "open finance" to facilitate user sharing and ownership of their financial data. Additionally, EquiDeFi intends to serve as a gateway to various secondary trading platforms where private investors can transact with each other outside of traditional exchanges on independent marketplaces, perform research and gather important investing information.
