We provide access to the best products in the industry at the lowest costs to the investor.

Private markets have consistently outperformed public markets. But, alternative investments have historically been exclusive to access and difficult to diversify unless you have endowment-level capital to deploy.

At Gridline, we believe that everyone should be able to emulate what the smartest investors are doing with their portfolios, but we recognized no system was in place to provide this unfettered access. So we built one.

The Team Building the Future of Alternative Investing
We brought together a team with decades of experience at world-class software, security and investment institutions.
