Zanbato has built and operates ZX, a leading trading venue for private company stock. Launched 4 years ago, ZX has quickly grown into the preferred platform that many of the world’s largest banks and broker-dealers trust for price discovery, liquidity, and trade execution services across private markets globally. Today, ZX handles billions of dollars of order flow per quarter and is growing quickly, with transaction volumes having more than tripled in 2020.
Private markets have grown exponentially over the past two decades, playing an increasingly central role in capital markets globally. From 2010 to 2020, the aggregate value of venture capital-backed private companies grew more than 40x, from less than $50 billion to more than $2 trillion globally. Yet despite their growth and size, private markets have stayed relatively illiquid, meaning many willing buyers and sellers never succeed in transacting. ZX is solving that by centralizing order flow across a membership of more than 100 banks and broker dealer trading desks, allowing their clients to access a more liquid and reliable private market.
