NYPPEX Announces Zero-Fee QMS Service

NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — NYPPEX, one of the world’s leading providers of secondary private equity market liquidity, announced a new zero-fee program1 for its leading Qualified Matching Services under IRS Regulation 1.7704 for secondary interest transfers in alternative investment partnerships. The new program applies to all transaction sizes and all partnership strategies including fund of funds, buyout, venture, real estate, natural resources, infrastructure, distressed debt, hedge and more.

NYPPEX believes this is an opportune time to introduce its zero-fee QMS program because selling limited partners are at risk of not receiving settlement approvals in 2021 from underlying general partners that have no available safe-harbor exemptions under IRS 1.7704.

NYPPEX believes this scenario may be caused by limited partners that were unable to access secondary liquidity in 2020, combining with more limited partners seeking secondary interest transfers in 2021. Together, this pent up transfer volume may cause private partnerships to reach their safe-harbor secondary transfer limits earlier in 2021.

The NYPPEX solution is to provide a QMS safe-harbor exemption to qualifying partnerships, which may enable more investors to access secondary liquidity and settle prior to 2022.

Further, NYPPEX believes the opportunity for secondary liquidity increases the probability of investors making capital commitments to new partnerships.
