Types of New Issues

New Issues come in different forms - we have detailed the key ones below:

IPOs generally mark the first sale of 'stock' (shares) by a privately owned company in order to gain a listing on the stock market.

Share offers mark the sale of additional ‘stock’ (shares) by an already publically listed company in order to raise further capital.

Retail bond issues are fixed income debt securities issued by a company to raise money. When you invest in these, you receive fixed interest payments in return for your investment. Your capital will also be repaid at a set date, known as the redemption date.

Investing in a new issue carries a significant degree of risk. The value of your investment may fall significantly after the new issue becomes available on the market and you could get back less than you invest. Before investing in any new issue please read the allocation policy.
