A secondary market is one in which securities or other instruments that have already been issued are traded. There are different kinds of secondary markets. In private equity, for example, a secondary market exists to trade stakes in companies that have already been acquired by private equity firms. Loans are also traded on secondary markets after they are made by banks. Stock exchanges, after an IPO, act as secondary markets for securities.
