Over the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic capital shift from the public to private markets. Since 2000, private market assets have grown 10x, representing over $6 trillion globally.* The private market, or investments outside of the stock market, were historically reserved for institutional and wealthy individuals. These include investments in private equity, private lending, real estate, venture capital, real assets such as artwork and even cryptocurrency.
While these asset classes make up a significant portion of a high net worth individual’s portfolio** access to these types of investments wasn’t available to the average individual due to regulations and the risks associated with private markets.
Thanks to Republic and the JOBS Act, anyone can become an investor in private markets and invest directly in vetted startups, real estate, video games, local businesses, growth-stage companies, crypto, music, litigation finance and more. The Republic ecosystem has deployed over $800 million in investments, has supported over 600 companies, and boasts a community of over 1.5M users across 100 countries.
