IPO's and Capital Raisings
Working with Ford Beckett, you will have access to many different investment opportunities. Being an international brokerage we have the ability to bring our clients the opportunities to be part of many blue chip Initial Public Offerings*. Depending on your risk tolerance and experience in the markets, you may also be eligible for other equity capital raising** ventures also.
*An Initial Public Offering (IPO), is the first sale of stock by a company to the public. A company can raise money by issuing either debt or equity in the form of shares. If the company has never issued equity to the public, its known as an IPO. There are many reasons why a company may decide to go public but one of the main opportunities is the access to additional capital for use in the business.
**Other Capital Raisings may involve the issue and sale of securities to a small number of investors instead of the general public. Unlike with a public offering, a formal prospectus does not have be provided for a private placement and thus it is often restricted to experienced or sophisticated investors that have a strong understanding of the process and risks involved.
