What is an IPO?
An initial public offering is the first time a company offers its stock for sale to the public. Following an IPO, the company ceases to be a private enterprise – it becomes publically listed and its shares are traded on a stock exchange.
We offer a market on a company's anticipated value during the build up to its IPO, so you can trade on a grey market before the shares are released.
When trading around an IPO it’s important to do your research and keep up-to-speed with breaking news. Remember IPO markets can be particularly volatile, so you should be careful to manage your exposure.
