IPO Stocks & New Share Issues
Access investments before they become available on the secondary market.
Types of New issues
New issues come in two main forms: New Retail Bonds or Initial Public Offerings (IPOs).
New Retail Bonds are sometimes called Fixed Income new Issues. They are new bonds issued by existing companies and are issued to raise money for the company. 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.
IPOs generally mark the first sale of ‘stock’ (shares) by a privately owned company. The company issues IPOs in order to gain a listing on the stock market.
Investing in both types of new issues carries a significant degree of risk. The value of your investment may fall significantly after the new issue becomes available on the market. Before investing in new issues please read our allocation policy.
