And institutional investors have also shown a strong interest in buying private market shares over the past six weeks, according to Tom Callahan, CEO of Nasdaq Private Market, a platform that facilitates secondary trading of private shares. “As public markets rallied and investor confidence improved, the private markets re-opened,” Callahan told Institutional Investor. “The prices of some private companies have risen, driven in part by a healing of macro conditions and a return of investor risk appetite.”

Callahan added that he has noticed more orders, tighter bid-ask spreads, and deeper trading volumes on Nasdaq’s platform over the past month. “Our order book is the strongest it’s been in over a year, and that’s very encouraging regarding activity levels in the second half of the year,” he said.
