Frequently
Asked Questions

  • What is an Initial
    Public Offering (IPO)?


    An Initial Public Offering (IPO) is the first offering of a company's ordinary shares to investors. There are many reasons why a company may wish to offer their shares to the public market but they are usually to raise capital, expand their business, pay down debt or finance other corporate activities.

  • When do IPOs
    happen?


    IPOs are often announced a few days before you can apply, but you may sometimes hear there is an intention to float in the financial section of newspaper or specialist publication such as the Financial Times. When we participate in an IPO we will contact our clients and provide them with the IPO details and keep them informed right until the IPO closes. You can sign up to IPO alerts below.

  • Why Invest in IPOs
    with us?


    • No stamp duty payable.
    • We do not charge admin, monthly or inactivity fees.
  • IPO Risks?


    There are always risks in any kind of investment and this is no different with IPOs. We strongly recommend that you do your research and a good starting point is the company’s prospectus. This is a document produced by the company that contains valuable information to help the investor make a fully informed decision. Investors should also do their own research and familiarise themselves with the sector the company operates in.

Risk Warning: All investments carry risks. The price of shares and other financial investments, and the income derived from them, may fall as well as rise and the amount realised may be less than the original capital invested. There is an extra risk of losing money when shares are bought in a period of high volatility. The extent and value of any ISA tax advantages or benefits may vary according to your individual circumstances.

The levels and bases of taxation may be subject to change. Forecasts are not a reliable indicator of future performance and past performance is not a guarantee of future success. You should carefully consider your own financial circumstances before dealing in the stock market. You may not get back the full amount invested. If you are in any doubt about your investment decisions, we recommend you seek the advice of an independent financial advisor authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, who specialises in advising on the acquisition of shares and other securities.
