Should retail investors get expanded access to private markets?

One of the hot button issues of the day, and something the government is now rethinking – should regular retail investors be given expanded access to the private markets? Josh and Michael tackle all the issues related to this topic in a new episode of Live from the Compound.

* Are there not enough publicly traded stocks to go around?

* Will retail investors find the next Facebook or merely get ripped off?

* Why would we want ordinary people to invest in areas with less transparency and oversight?

*Can ordinary investors possibly compete with venture capitalists and private equity firms for winning investment opportunities.

*Are there enough IPOs or is there a shortage, relative to history?

*Do companies stay private too long before the IPO these days?

….and a lot more.
