IPOs

Take a position on a company before the Initial Public Offering (IPO)

  • Trade on our grey market before the IPO
    Take a position on a company's anticipated value before shares are released

  • Trade on shares after the IPO
    Trade CFDs after the IPO

How does it work?

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.

This means you can take advantage of news and speculation on the price, and any potential volatility.

You can also trade CFDs on the company's shares from the first day of conditional trading.
