A Solution for TraditionallyIlliquid Investments

Long hold periods on direct private equity investments mean that invested capital is typically tied up for 5+ years until invested funds have been returned, and another 5+ years until the full capital gain has been received, limiting many investors’ willingness to participate in these opportunities.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are dedicated to providing the best execution for buyers and sellers. Orders are matched by price and time priority.
Price priority: For buyers, this means higher prices are prioritized. For sellers, lower prices are prioritized. All matches occur at the same clearing price, which is better than or equal to each participant’s order price.
Time priority: For identical price indications, orders are filled in the order in which they are received.

Commitments are not considered as part of the price indication, but rather investors are assumed to honor remaining commitments during the remaining life of the funds. The price indication is related to the existing NAV of the fund as per the most recent quarterly statement. We open Secondary Windows right after quarterly NAV figures are published to investors to allow the same information basis.

Lower prices result in fewer sellers while higher prices result in fewer buyers. The clearing price is the single price at which the highest (commitment) volume of interested buyers and sellers are successfully matched.

Moonfare offers Secondary Windows as a service free of charge to investors on a temporary basis. Depending on demand and experience with the service, we might change the model at a later stage.

Once a trade is matched, documents are required to be completed and funds transferred within the periods provided in the match notification. Moonfare will facilitate execution of completed transfers once documents are approved and funding is confirmed from all participants. As part of the approval process, Moonfare will collect approval of transfers from the underlying fund‘s general partner, which cannot be unreasonably withheld.

Yes, Moonfare merely facilitates a transaction between participants.

No, all completed transactions are final. Upon the next Secondary Window, you can restart the process to buy and sell.

Interests may be bought or sold during Secondary Windows. At the conclusion of each Secondary Window, buyers and sellers are notified whether their orders were matched, and provided transfer documentation and funding instructions. In general, the windows will be open for 14 days; we will broadly announce official start and end dates.

Upon submission, you will receive a confirmation email.

Bids are binding upon the close of the Secondary Window. If you wish to change or cancel your bid, you may contact us before then.

NAVs represent an updated assessment of investment value. This value is reported quarterly by the underlying fund managers and determined in line with strict valuation guidelines. The fund managers we work with are large organizations with large investors like life insurance companies and pension funds, who have high standards of accuracy and control of the valuation process. Moonfare and its investors benefit from their high standards. The NAV reported to our investors additionally includes any potential cash reserves and liabilities of the feeder vehicles.
