“This is a platform where people are looking to fill their bucket with alternative investments. Different people want to see different things. They don’t come to Republic looking to invest in public equities and stocks, but they do come to Republic looking for unique investment opportunities that are uncorrelated. Some of which have really high potential risk rewards that would be very difficult to find in a public market type of platform.”
