In addition to the investment, Pearce said they have created an equity incentive model designed to encourage co-investment in MAXEX from other buyers on the platform and motivate them to trade through the exchange, creating more liquidity for sellers.

“This consortium model is in line with how other leading fixed income markets have achieved widespread market adoption,” he said.

Existing investors such as AGNC Ventures and Moore Asset Backed Fund also took part in the investment. Investment terms were not disclosed.
