Prime Unicorn Index Announces Partnership with The Aeon Group, Inc., Becoming First to Offer Index Linked Investments to Accredited Investors
AUSTIN, TX. — The Prime Unicorn Index, the first index to track the share price performance of privately-funded U.S. companies, announced today a partnership with The Aeon Group, Inc. (AEON), to offer index-linked investments to accredited investors.
AEON is a collection of alternative investment products that are specifically tailored to accredited and qualified investors. The new products are being called AEON Prime Unicorn Index Linked Units.
“Interest in unicorns, which are private companies that have a valuation of $1 billion or more, has reached unprecedented levels,” said Ross Barrett, CEO and founder of Prime Unicorn Index. “We have seen this first-hand with the tremendous interest in our subsidiary, Lagniappe Labs, and its proprietary research, which is used to help determine the valuations of these unicorns.”
In light of that interest, Barrett and his team have been looking for a partner that could capitalize on the company’s unique ability to value unicorns, as part of an overall index.
“AEON’s mission is to enable access for accredited investors to investment opportunities typically reserved only for institutions. The AEON Prime Unicorn Index Linked Units is another step forward in that mission,” said Alan Lewis, Chief Operating Officer of AEON.
Demetrios Mallios, Founder and CEO of AEON added, “The partnership between our firms to bring this type of opportunity to the markets establishes an important moment in AEON’s history. This launch has been a dream of ours for many years. We are excited to be at the forefront, and look forward to continuing to deliver on our mission of giving the investment community the ability to ‘Invest In What’s Next.’”
