How to trade US shares

Investing in IPOs and share offerings

  • An ‘Initial Public Offering’ (IPO) allows you to buy shares in companies for a set price before they list on the stock market.
  • Share offerings are another way for companies to raise money, companies will offer additional shares for a set price to potential investors.

How to get involved in IPOs and share offerings:

We offer the opportunity to invest in both options with PrimaryBid. Simply download their app, create an account and follow the instructions on how to invest.

When you make a decision to buy shares on the PrimaryBid app you’ll be able to select us as your broker. PrimaryBid will then confirm your details with us and arrange to transfer the shares, we’ll then place your new shares into your account.

Important details:

  • Shares can only be transferred into your own Share Dealing Account, and not into an ISA, SIPP or joint account.
  • Once your PrimaryBid application has been completed and is successful, we’ll work with them to transfer any new shares into your account held with us.
  • We’ll aim to get shares into your account as soon as possible, however in some instances it can take up to 3 working days.
  • You will not be able to sell your shares until the transfer process has been completed. If you’re looking to sell your shares as soon as trading commences following an IPO or share offering this is not possible with our service and you should consider alternative options.
