The financial aftermarket, which is also known as the secondary market, is a market where various investments are transacted after they have been issued in the past. Various security options can be bought and sold from various outside groups that work as aftermarkets. This means that the buyer is not directly buying them off of a particular market. These include corporations that offer shares and bonds and funds offered by treasuries.
