Investment has different meanings in finance and economics. Finance investment is putting money into something with the expectation of gain, that upon thorough analysis, has a high degree of security for the principal amount, as well as security of return, within an expected period of time. In contrast putting money into something with an expectation of gain without thorough analysis, without security of principal, and without security of return is gambling.
An initial public offering (IPO) is the first time that the stock of a private company is offered to the public. IPOs are often issued by smaller, younger companies seeking capital to expand, but they can also be done by large privately owned companies looking to become publicly traded. In an IPO, the issuer obtains the assistance of an underwriting firm, which helps determine what type of security to issue, the best offering price, the amount of shares to be issued and the time to bring it to market.
Investment Firms and Investment managers are typically contacted by investors to find out what stocks to invest in. We can provide a free portfolio analysis to see if you are properly diversified based on your personal goals and individual financial situation. Stock exchange investments are the most known and popular investments, but are not always the best opportunities. One of the main advantages of working with our network is we are able to provide companies for you to invest in before they are public. You will have access to some of the most sought after new IPO stocks that are not available to most investment companies, but are part of our syndicate.
A pre-IPO placement occurs when a portion of an initial public offering (IPO) is placed with private investors right before the IPO is scheduled to hit the market. Typically, private investors in a pre-IPO placement are large private equity or hedge funds that are willing to buy a large stake in the company.
