New Issues and IPOs

What are New Issues and IPOs

New issues are investments made available to the public before they trade on the open market. They are typically introduced by companies to raise capital to expand their business, pay down debt, or finance other corporate activities.

Most often new issues appear as Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) or Retail Bonds. An IPO is launched where an established company lists its shares on the open market for the first time. A retail bond is launched when a company is looking to raise extra capital by borrowing cash from the investor at a fixed rate for a set period.

Range of Offers

Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), new issues and launches are the main methods by which companies and fund managers raise money.
