IPO Features​

The opportunity to participate in an IPO for retail investors is Freedom24's unique feature among the EU brokers. Customers can get IPO stocks at their initial price prior to public trading, and earn by selling stocks as soon as stocks get listed on the exchange and their lock-up period expires (prices can grow by tens or even hundreds of percent). The minimal amount to get IPO stocks is just $2,000. During the lock-up period, the investors can also use a forward contract to fix the price.

The number of shares purchased by clients during an IPO depends on supply and demand. The allocation of IPO shares is calculated individually depending on the client rating, based on his Freedom24 trading history and assets (clients with higher rating can get larger allocation). The rating is calculated transparently for customers and updated automatically.

It is important to take care of your client rating to get a larger allocation of IPO stocks.
The rating criteria are:
- portfolio liquidity;
- trading activity;
- consistency of IPO participation.

Portfolio Liquidity -
This point, which impacts the allocation more than others, assesses the liquidity of the securities included into the portfolio. IPO shares during the lock up period are considered not liquid.

Trading activity -
This is about your trading transactions: buying and selling shares, using your margin, buying forwards, and using subscription plans. Please note: IPO trading commission does not count.

IPO trading consistency -
This means whether you invest more or less the same amount into all IPO's you trade.

Get started by building a diversified portfolio of liquid securities, and pay attention to new
IPOs - they appear at Freedom24 quite often, and we always highlight them in our e-mail
and social network channels.
