Why Did Tyro Payments Setup a Trading Hub for Secondary Trading?


In 2016 Tyro Payments set up a secondary market with PrimaryMarkets to allow early investors to liquidate some, or all, of their holdings.

Early investors had seen their holdings grow significantly, and while they still wanted to hold most of their Tyro shares, they did seek a market to help rebalance their holdings.

By offering secondary market trading Tyro drove liquidity for shareholders and attracted new investors with a promise of an active market for shareholders.
