Eric Taylor is the Founder and CEO of Trident. He has been curious and passionate about investing since high school, yet frustrated by the roadblocks he encountered along the way that deny most people access to the best investments.ImpactGenerational wealth imbalances in the United States are getting worse for a number of reasons. One of these reasons is that the best investments that are used to build wealth (like private equity) are only available to a select few. Trident is a platform that we believe will serve to level the playing field by allowing individuals to access investments that are generally only open to large, entrenched institutions.TridentTrident is a digital marketplace for private equity investing. At scale, we will be the operating system by which shares in private companies are purchased and subsequently traded. At the core of our mission is a basic question: if you can invest in public companies using E-Trade or Fidelity, why is there no platform that allows direct investment in private companies?
The reality is that alternative investments like private equity are how many create and preserve generational wealth, but these types of investments are in opaque, generally inaccessible to the majority of eligible investors. Trident is on the forefront of creating a liquid marketplace that would allow trading and access to these investments.
