GATE Technologies, via its fully developed and easily customizable Global Alternative Trading Engine or “GATE platform”, is rapidly establishing what are expected to become the default marketplaces for numerous illiquid/alternative asset classes in multiple geographies. GATE Technologies, LLC (“GATE”) is an innovative, global financial services and technology company founded in 2009. We provide technology solutions and develop platforms that facilitate the trading of illiquid securities and promote pre trade and post trade transparency. Currently, GATE operates in the United States through its Wholly owned subsidiary, GATE U.S. LLC (“GATE U.S.”), a broker-dealer registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“F1NRA”). GATE U.S. operates as an agency broker and an alternative trading system.
GATE U.S. facilitates transactions in the following asset classes: unregistered securities of private companies, restricted securities of publicly traded companies, and Warrants. GATE U.S. is also working with other firms to facilitate the trading of state and federal tax credits, asset-backed securities, and limited partnership interests. GATE believes in creating value through trading in a structured, regulated venue Where buyers and sellers meet for price discovery and to transact, settle, and transfer securities.
GATE’s business is fully regulated, and the company’s records are fully archived and auditable. While the core of our business model is creating value for private companies and market participants, GATE Technologies is also an innovative, privately held, emerging company. As a result, We encounter the same capital formation and startup company issues that are encountered by other early stage companies.
As founder and chief executive officer of GATE Technologies, Vince Molinari has been the driving force behind GATE’s mission to create new market infrastructure that brings transparency, efficiency, and liquidity to the unstructured global alternative asset markets. He is responsible for GATE’s strategic planning and business initiatives, including corporate alliances and strategic partnerships. His vision is based on a core belief that “actionable knowledge” drives investments, and that technology can close the gap between traditional and emerging alternative markets. Vince believes opening the private market for investment can spearhead economic growth and job creation. The company’s initiatives in Impact Investing reflect Vince’s commitment to bringing positive change through financial innovation.
