How Does It Work

  1. Selected IPOs –  Set up a personal account with Freedom 24 . Their analysts select promising IPO opportunities and send you information so you can make an informed decision. You then have a few days to submit your application to participate in the  IPO.
  2. Buying stocks – Within your personal Freedom 24 account you then decide how much you wish to invest in the IPO. A collective application is then sent to the IPO underwriter.
  3. Start  of trading – From the start of public trading  there is a lock up period so you cannot sell your shares in this period.
  4. Period of trading – During the lock up period you can fix the price using a forward contract if you wish. This usually costs 10% to 15% of the current stock price.
  5. Trade closing – At the end of the lock up period you can manage stocks at your own discretion – leave them in your portfolio or sell them.

Capital at risk

IMPORTANT: No news, feature article or comment should be seen as a personal recommendation to invest. Prior to making any decision to invest, you should ensure that you are familiar with the risks associated with a particular plan. If you are at all unsure of the suitability of a particular product, both in respect of its objectives and its risk profile, you should seek independent financial advice. The value of shares, ETFs and ETCs bought through a share dealing account, a stocks and shares ISA or a SIPP can fall as well as rise, which could mean getting back less than you originally put in. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Spread bets and CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. Between 67%-75% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs. You should consider whether you understand how spread bets and CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. Professional clients can lose more than they deposit. All trading involves risk. Tax treatment of ISAs depends on your individual circumstances and is based on current law which may be subject to change in the future. ISA transfer charges may apply, please check with your provider.
