Limited Partnership Market Makers

Self-directed IRA investors rely on the assistance of limited partnership market maker firms to facilitate secondary market transactions when the fund sponsor is not offering this directly. Since alternative assets are generally illiquid, a secondary market could be a helpful way that investors can sell their positions and exit funds. These market makers help match buyers and sellers of alternative assets. 

Below is a list of firms making a market in limited partnership units that may be able to assist you. Please remember that investments traded on a secondary market involve wide price variations, and often times, substantial discounts.*
