Risk disclosure: Investing in private placements involves a high degree of risk. Securities sold through private placements are typically not publicly traded and, therefore, are less liquid. Companies seeking private placement investments tend to be in earlier stages of development and have not yet been fully tested in the public marketplace. Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns, and long-term commitments. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. Securities listed in the Marketplace are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and there is no bank guarantee.SSL-capable web browsers that support 128-bit strong encryption.
