2019 was a huge year for IPOs with the likes of Uber, Pinterest, and Beyond Meat among many companies going public.
Despite the global economic outlook, 2020 is also shaping up to be another big IPO year, with the likes of Lemonade and Nikola Motors having made their stock market debuts.
And Airbnb, Palantir, Doordash and Snowflake are all set to premier before year end.
An initial public offering (IPO) is the process by which a private company sells shares to public investors for the first time and lists on a stock exchange.
The main reason companies go public is to raise money by selling their shares, which can help to expand their business and pay back investors.
So far this year we’ve added several freshly IPO’d companies to your app, including Lemonade, GoHealth, Jamf, BigCommerce and Rackspace.
And to keep track of what’s coming up, we’ve created this ultimate 2020 IPO tracker on the community forum to keep tabs on which companies are rumoured to, have filed, and have ultimately IPO’d.
We’ll add as many more of these fresh IPOs onto your Freetrade app as possible*, so please keep requesting them and we’ll add to the list.
*Sometimes, we can’t add a fresh IPO right away for technical reasons. For example, if the pricing/market cap is likely to be too low.
