What is an IPO?

and how do they work?

An Initial Public Offering (IPO) is when a private company makes its shares available to the public to buy for the first time, turning the company into a Public Limited Company (PLC). This is what is known as a flotation on the stock market. Well-known examples of IPOs and new share offerings over recent years have been Royal Mail, Just Eat and WorldPay.

In addition to IPOs for equities, we also offer IPOs and new issues for retail bonds, investment trusts, REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) and mutual funds.
