(Shreveport, LA) – VC Experts (www.vcexperts.com) today announced it had entered into a strategic relationship with ACE Portal (ACE) that will see it integrate its private capital markets data and content into ACE’s technology platform for private securities. ACE is a leading transaction management platform for private placements of equity, debt and other securities and is a partner of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Through this new alliance, VC Experts will provide proprietary information, including industry-leading content on financing and fundraising, to investors and issuers of private securities who utilize the ACE platform.
“The integration of VC Experts’ insights, data and analysis into ACE’s transaction management platform furthers our goal of improving the market for private placements by bringing greater efficiency to the private placement process and making information more readily available to investors,” said ACE chief executive officer Peter Williams.
“The JOBS Act has brought about significant interest regarding investing in private securities, a market that is now estimated at more than $1 trillion annually,” said Joe Bartlett of VC Experts. “The regulatory environment is finally catching up to technological advancements which facilitate interactions between issuers and investors. VC Experts will offer great value to the ACE platform and that value will ultimately accrue to investors and issuers of private securities who utilize it.”
VC Experts will commence delivery of its content and data through www.aceportal.com and via the NYSE Connect iPad App under the Private Capital Markets section in late July.
